“I’ve long been a fan of Samantha’s work, combining free motion embroidery and hand-sewn elements to make whimsical creations. This book features 14 artistic softies with instructions and templates to make them yourself. I love the way each project is photographed with a hand-drawn background, pulling us into Samantha’s world of quirky characters and interesting objects.”—The Long Thread
“Oh my! the cuteness is killing me . . . From groovy cars, to chic ladies about town, school boys and bunny rabbits and village houses—you have all the ingredients for lots of afternoons of imaginary play.”—whipup.net
