Over the Counter #222

What books caught my eye this week as they passed over the library counter and under my scanner? A pair for the crafty folks in the crowd this week....

First up is Happy Gloves: Charming Softy Friends Made From Colorful Gloves by Miyako Kanamori.

From the publisher, Penguin:

"Whimsical and endearing, here are nineteen more softy sewing projects in the adorable, quirky aesthetic of Sock and Glove. Because who doesn't have a few odd gloves lying around and who couldn't use another quietly cheerful small friend?

Includes complete instructions to make a chipmunk, frog, duck, flower, car, donkey, tiger, and more!"

Not just gloves, but socks as well.....Sock and Glove: Creating Charming Soft Friends from Cast-off Socks and Gloves by Easy to make…easy to love!

From the publisher, Penguin:

"Sock and Glove presents thirteen delightful softy projects that are quick to make-and certain to amuse and delight. Full of individuality and mischief, these stuffed creations are all pieced together from ordinary socks, gloves, and mittens. Step-by-step illustrations and instructions make it easy to craft and dress a whole menagerie, including monkeys, elephants, piglets, bunnies, and even an insouciant fish.

Endearing to adults and children alike, these whimsical creatures make perfect gifts and inspiring companions."

(Over the Counter is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World. I've sadly come the realization that I cannot physically read every book that catches my interest as it crosses over my counter at the library. But... I can mention them and maybe one of them will catch your eye as well. See if your local library has them on their shelves!)
