I’ve purchased a new book of patterns, Invasion of the Plush Monsters by Veronika Alice Gunter and John Murphy. It’s been out for a couple of years, but I only just spotted is a few weeks back whilst browsing through the craft books on Amazon. It’s quite similar to John Murphy’s Stupid Creatures book, though the patterns are generally a little more complicated and you aren’t limited to using just socks as your core material. The illustrations are excellent and the instructions are very clear. Even if you aren’t an expert in sewing/monster making you will find the book easy to work through. As well as just monsters, some of the creatures in here are also bags, purses and even slippers. Once I’ve completed the projects I’m currently working on, I’ll be jumping straight into this book for inspiration.
