I borrowed this book from my local library and loved it so much that I had to have it! It's a fantastic book for beginners to sewing/monster making to use and provides a solid foundation for future crafting.
Pros Bright and colourful pictures Good book for beginners Once you get the hang of the monsters, you can easily adapt them. I changed a few patterns so I didn't have to sew the arms on separately. Lots of pictures of finished monsters Lots of work in progress pictures so you can stay on track
Cons Personally, I am not a huge fan of fleece so I used cotton which, I think, made some of the sewing a bit tricky. The details are, at times, a bit fiddly but this is easily remedied with things like safety eyes or buttons.
