"Oh, these are fun: 16 new softies to make from socks. Brenna Maloney thought she'd got soc critters out of her system with the publication of her first book, Socks Appeal (reviewed in Homespun Vol 11 No 10), but one day she found herself making a sock crocodile, then a kangaroo and joey. When a rooster followed shortly after, her husband knew that home life would be chaotic again while she produced another gallery of fabuously funky projects for a new book. Brenna is particularly keen this time to encourage readers to experiment and make each project uniquely their own. She readily admits that success is not guaranteed (she includes photographs of some of her own flops to make the point) but nevertheless, she believes that it's important to help crafters develop their creativity and confidence. The book's subtitle, "Cute and cuddly....weird and wild" sums things up pretty well. Instructions are provided for some lovely little animals - ducks, bees, teddy bears - as well as some that only a mother could love - monsters, aliens and robots. They can be sewn by machine or by hand, making them accessible for everyone. Go on - give them a whirl. You know you want to!" --Australian Homespun; April 2012
