Softies!

I have never made a softie, but glancing through Softies, Simple Instructions for 25 Plush Pals by Therese Laskey (Softies Central) reassures me that I certainly could.

The beginning of the book goes through material (fabric, filler, embroidery floss), sewing techniques, dealing with curves, takes you through a bunch of hand stitching and talks about how to use the patterns inside. The patterns are tucked neatly into a pocket in the back of the book.

Each project is photographed well, gives a list of materials and what stitches you’ll need to use and has hand drawn illustrations where they are needed as well as an artist bio. The project steps are laid out clearly and the finished size of each object is given. All of the projects are adorable and will have you longing to pull out some materials and thread. The projects are arranged from easy to difficult in the book. While many are made from that favorite material for softies, felt, there are a few which are crocheted, machine felted or needle felted, with instructions on those techinques as well. There is a list of resources in the back of the book including sources for materials and inpspiration.

The book is spiral bound so it’s easy to keep open in front of you as you work (a feature I love in craft and sewing books, and Chronicle Books is really great for making books like this). It also has an elastic loop to keep the book shut, and perhaps keep your place. The tone and photos are friendly while proving clear instruction.

There are projects from names you’ll likely recognize if you follow along with the softies or plush movement such as Teresa Levy of Sewing Stars, Alicia Paulson of Posie Gets Cozy, Heidi Kenney of My Paper Crane, Shawn Smith of Shawnimals, Drissy Harris of Bigger Krissy, Lizette Greco, Hillary Lang of Wee Wonderfuls, and the book has a foreward by Leah Kramer of Craftster.

And hooray!, I have three copies to give away! If you’d like one please leave a comment for this entry with your email address (which I’ll be able to see even though it won’t show up when published).

Small print: You have until noon on Wednesday, September 5th. I’ll use the random number generator to pick three people, whom I’ll contact via email. If I don’t hear back from one of the winners by Wednesday, September 19th I will choose another random number.

Good luck!

update: Congratulations to the winners Lilfish and Elizabeth!

    I have never made a softie myself and have held off as I don’t want to make a mess of such cute creatures. A book with simple instructions that convinces me that I can do it, sounds perfect.

    Ohmigosh, you’re going to have over a thousand comments by this time next week! I actually just saw a copy of this book, did you find the layout just a teensy bit confusing? But I think the pattern envelope and elastic bookmark more than make up for that. Chronicle Books are the best!

I love softies and the book has patterns by some well known bloggers. I’ve been collecting patterns for other baby items to make too. I asked Chris how hard he thought it would be for us to not buy things made in China, and we both figured it would be very hard. [...]
