Nothing's simpler to make, cuddlier to hold, and nicer to display than a sock doll. Just take a sock, fill it with stuffing, add yarn hair and facial features, and dress it up. Whether you choose a gorilla, ballerina, or clown, there's a doll here to suit everyone from kids to collectors. General instructions explain how to choose socks, cut, sew, stuff, and sculpt the dolls. Attach eyes, noses, and mouths, and paint a blush on the cheeks. Plus, there's a special note on making your dolls "child safe." You'll want all of these! At the Zoo: Create a home menagerie -- including a bear, giraffe, and moose. On the Farm: Sew farm friends like "Moonique" the cow. At a Party: Celebrate with angels, snowmen, and Santa Claus too!

Booklist Review

It is such a simple, old-fashioned concept, if truth be told, that it is a surprise no one has resurrected the sock-doll craft--until now. Mother-daughter team Stone and Lowe have obviously perfected the how-tos; like most Chapelle-generated books, theirs begins by telling all--materials, tools, and the basic shaping and attachment instructions. Then the more than 35 projects build on the first chapter, with dolls fashioned on zoo and farm creatures as well as anthropomorphic beings (Santa, babies, Mr. Shivers the snowman, etc.). Color photographs are plentiful, yet it can be difficult to separate one doll's directions from the next. Metric conversion chart included. --Barbara Jacobs
