This is a really delightful little book by Miyako Kanamori called Sock and Glove. It is so cute, and I couldn't help purchasing it when I saw it (being a sucker for softies as I am). It's a book that shows how to create a range of gorgeous little soft friends from socks and gloves. They are able to be hand or machine sewn and look very simple to make.
I am yet to try one, because I cannot decide who I like best, although I must say that the zebra makes me smile every time I see him! There are even instructions on how to make clothes for them too. So sweet.
