    Excellent Book - Plushie/Softie makers must take a look!

    Glassenberg provides a wonderfully put together book on creating a wide variety of interesting birds. The book contains 16 full patterns and instructions, a detailed materials and tools list and a techniques section complete with snippet on how to devise your own bird patterns.

    The only downside (an understandable one) is that there is only one complete step-by-step, picture-by-picture, walk-through of one of the patterns. From that one explanation you feel your way through the other patterns. If you're the type of person who needs pictures every step of the way you might get a little frustrated.

    That being said, I can't wait to get started!
