Overview

…they’re frighteningly adorable, and they’re about to conquer the world of kids’ crafts! Influenced by the popularity of Japanese animé, video-game culture, and urban illustration and design, lovable plush monsters have become a big new phenomenon. Yet they’re so simple to sew that kids can do it—as long as they have this book, the only one of its kind created just for children. Just take fabric, a needle and thread, and stuffing to make one of a dozen cute, odd, and irresistible projects: creatures fashioned from old clothes, sporting Velcro faces (change expressions everyday!), and that even do double duty as mp3 player covers, backpacks, and pillows. Sidebars offer amusing information about the critters’ names, skills, and tastes. Not only will kids have fun, they’ll learn how to work with patterns and master basic hand and machine sewing skills. And, because encouraging creativity is so important, the guide suggests variations so children can make one-of-a-kind creations.
Featuring the illustrations and monster designs of John Murphy, author of Stupid Sock Creatures!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

The plush monsters have landed, and they're poised to take over! Gunter goes beyond simple stuffed animals in this collection, which features plush monsters as cell-phone cozies, slippers, purses, and even a helmet. Though the accessories may be best suited for children, any adult with a sense of humor should appreciate the lighthearted, creative designs. Gunter's focus on applying your own creativity and personal style to the patterns in the book is refreshing. A clear overview of sewing basics, plus a project designed to help beginners practice key techniques, ensure that sewing novices drawn in by the clever premise and colorful monsters will find success. Recommended for all sewing collections.
