Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls! Step right this way and discover the wonderful world of misfits, oddballs and the quirkiest creations you've ever seen. With 35 fun projects to make, see some fabric, thread and buttons come to life right before your very eyes. Every misfit has their own personality, from Chico the Latino chicken with a passion for paella to the parrot who loves to have a chinwag across the fence with the neighbours, so what are you waiting for? Pick your favourite and start creating! You won't need to be an experienced stitcher to make your favourite misfit. Every project is presented in a simple way, with an instructor guiding you step-by-step through everything you'll need to know to make the characters. There's also a handy Learning the Basics section to help beginners get to grips with sewing. With brilliant photography that gives you a glimpse into the misfit's day-to-day adventures and quirky illustrations, "Make Your Own Misfits" is an amazing way to bring sewing to life.
Bobby Dazzler is a world of quirky and eccentric handmade characters created by Fumie Kamijo and Rosie Short. Each one is completely original and they all have their own special story to tell. Fumie and Rosie have made thousands of unique figures over the years and have collectors from every corner of the world. Their days are spent making dolls, doing workshops, drawing, writing stories, eating bagels and drinking tea. If you can't find them in their London studio they may have gone on a road trip in their vintage horsebox filled top to toe with their Bobby Dazzler misfits.
