Indie Knows: "The Softies Kit" Review

Indie Knows writer: Nicole Sapsford

The Softies Kit by Therese Laskey is an ultra cute kit that shows you step by step how to create your very own plushies. There are hundreds of plushie instruction books out there but this one gives you something a little different. Yes the softies are astoundingly cute, yes the instructions are clear and precise- so what else does it give you that the others don't?

Well this is no ordinary how-to book. For one thing it's a box. Open the box to find 15 beautifully presented instruction cards for each softie along with an easy to hard rating. There's also an instructional booklet that shows you how to make each stitch and explains all the terminology if you get stuck. At the bottom of the box you'll find all the materials needed to make your very own adorable iced cake (minus the calories). All patterns are included which makes it easy to get started on your very own cute collection.

This really is a perfect gift for an avid sewer or a complete beginner. Not only does it contain enough varied projects to keep both skill levels interested but the general prettiness of the kit will be impressive enough all by itself.
