Craft Book Review: Steampunk Softies by Sarah Skeate and Nicola Tedman
There are few things that crafters find quite as irresistible as a beautiful book filled with adorable, quirky plushies, and Steampunk Softies delivers just that! The cover boasts “Scientifically Minded Dolls From a Past That Never Was,” and the projects do not disappoint. Each doll has its own personality, with just the right amount of steampunk charm to bring all of the strange and wonderful details together!
Published by Andrews McMeel Publishing, Steampunk Softies is fully illustrated and has detailed color photos throughout. The book is 80 pages long with a paperback cover, and includes step-by-step instructions for 8 softie projects, each with its own story and a unique personal style…
To try out the book, I made Marveletta O’Houlihan (p. 22), and then I customized the design to make a Steampunk Softies self-portrait. I think she definitely looks just like a little steampunk me, right down to the red hair streak and ugly gold glasses!
