    Fun ideas and creatures!

    When author John Murphy wrote the first Stupid Sock Creatures book, he was surprised to find how popular it quickly became. The creatively fun concept of turning unmated socks and other trinkets into fantastical creatures appealed to a wide audience. I think a big part of its attraction was that it allowed crafters of any and all levels of experience to easily dive in and create something unique and all their own.

    In his follow up book, Return of the Stupid Sock Creatures, Mr. Murphy combines his talents with those of several other artists to offer lots of different creature ideas. As someone who has sewn since I was a young child, I found the illustrated diagrams and down to earth instructions to be extremely forgiving and easy to follow.

    Each creature is presented with a brief, amusing background story and given how many different styles and colors of socks can be obtained now, each project is definitely unique! My kids also love Return of the Stupid Sock Creatures (and its predecessor!) and have used it largely as a jumping off point to make many of their own creations.
