Textile Art Book Reviews

At Mr X Stitch we love to review textile art and embroidery books for you. There are so many great books to discover, packed with needlework inspiration and textile techniques, so we dive into each book to find out what’s good, what’s bad and let you know why you should pick it up.

Monsters eh? Sometimes scary, sometimes not-so-scary, always popular. If you’ve got little monsters in your household, Fiona Goble’s new book, Make a Monster: Over 15 Easy-to-make Fleecie Toys You’ll Love to Sew, will help you tame them.

Fiona’s book contains the patterns for 15 different monsters for you to try and they seem like quite a friendly bunch. The designs vary in difficulty as you progress through the book; each monster comes with a full set of instructions and there are templates at the back of the book to give you everything you need.

The monsters are very characterful and charming; there’s bound to be someone that takes your fancy and with Fiona’s clear and thorough instructions you should have no problem in creating your own creatures at all. There are plenty of tops tips peppered throughout the book and you’ll enjoy making these beasts your own!
