Product Description

Review

Just when you think we’ve seen it all from Brenna, she thrills us again! Sock It To Me completes her sock stuffy trilogy (Sockology and Socks Appeal are the first two volumes) and she finishes with a delight-filled bang. Complete with theme music for the projects to get you in the mood, this book is chock full of the “seedy side of sock creatures,” from armadillos to wicked weeds. We found ourselves turning the pages just to see what wacky creatures were next, and then we wanted to make more than one of these silly creatures. (We had no idea that we had to make an anglerfish, but there it is, we do!) With tons of step-by-step photos and suggestions for potential supplies, this book is great for newbies and veterans alike. Buy this book and make some sock creatures. And then you’ll smile at your own whimsical menagerie. --Generation Q Magazine; September 2012

3.0 out of 5 stars Yes and no Nov. 1 2013
By M. Hoyt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The ideas are welcome, but the author's overly cutesy writing style becomes tiresome very quickly. Does anyone care that she hates sloths and grasshoppers? Not me; I'd rather have had more project ideas and less babble.

As to the directions, some seem to require too much cutting the socks apart, cutting out pieces, then sewing them back together in a shape that could have been achieved more easily by using the sock's original tube shape, instead of making the socks into flat fabric pieces. For instance, the flattened round shape used for several projects could easily be made from a section of sock with a gathering stitch to close the open ends, instead of cutting out eight little sections for each round shape you want, then sewing them together to form a ball.

Also, at least one set of directions contains an error: if you make the bedbug feet according to the directions, you'll wind up with six little inside-out closed-on-all-sides items, with no way to get them right side-out unless you cut an end off them. Since sock material ravels so easily, it seems more sensible to make as few cuts and seams as possible.

You might way to look at Stray Sock Sewing and Stray Sock Sewing Too for some excellent projects with good instructions and illustrations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Halloween and party fun doll book, scary LOL Sept. 5 2012
By Linda Lanese - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
When I was young clowns scared me! But we are living in an era when the scarier the better with our stuffed dolls and animals. Today I am still not fond of clowns but I love Brenna's creations. The "Mug Shots" are the cutest things and they remind me of the ones in the Christmas story when the boy had his imaginary shot out on Christmas day; okay I regress. The "Fungus" would be such fun to hind around a Halloween party. The "snowmen" are truly delightful and kids will love them. I can't forget the "Bats" and the "Spider". I think anyone with children; moms, grandmas, friends and aunts will love this book. Brenna has complete instructions as well as templates so you can recreate her designs.
This book is such fun and you and the children can select the ones you fall in love with or the ones that will scare their friends. I can see my young teen stuffing a bat or a spider in her pocket and pulling it out to frighten her friends.
Just in time for Halloween, Brenna Maloney is back with 16 all-new sock creatures to stitch in this boldly inspiring follow-up to her best-selling books, Socks Appeal and Sockology. She has written this book for everyone with projects that are super easy to advance.

I've got this book from our local library, just for you to know that I'm not the author's aunt. I so enjoyed looking at the smart projects that I decided to pay my compliments here. I salute the humor and imagination contained within the pages.
