by Sarah Skeate and Nicola Todman
Meet the Steampunk Softies, a charmingly raffish cast of characters for you to make, each with his or her own unique personality. From Charity Storm, the aviatrix who sports a set of built-in wings, to Tompion Zeitgeist, the sinister illusionist with mesmerising eyes, each of the eight little softies has a story to tell, and all share key steampunk characteristics, firmly rooted in a past that never quite existed.
Use everyday crafting materials to create some decidedly out-of-the-ordinary characters. Customise your softies with oddball or vintage touches – give old keys, single buttons and leftover jewellery fixings a fresh new identity.
With fully illustrated step-by-step instructions and hints and tips to ensure that every softie emerges in full steampunk style.
