Steampunk Softies

Scientifically Minded Dolls from a Past That Never Was

Authors Sarah Skeate and Nicola Tedman offer crafters an array of charmingly raffish dolls to create in Steampunk Softies: Scientifically Minded Dolls From a Past That Never Was.

Steampunk is a cult artistic trend in which steam-powered machines collide with modern technology within a fictionalized Victorian setting. Even if you're unfamiliar with the term "steampunk," chances are you've already discovered it through the works of Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, Tim Burton, Mary Shelley, or Lemony Snicket.

The adorable characters in Steampunk Softies feature prominent science fiction and fantasy elements, as well as anachronistic inventions and props. Yet despite their meticulous detailing, the dolls are simple enough for a sewing novice to construct. Illustrated step-by-step blueprints make it easy, and a handy reference section provides additional tips on aging and distressing project materials to capture that unique steampunk aesthetic.

There's even a short biography that accompanies each softie, providing a delightful background story for each character.

Many Steampunk Softies have dual roles that add practicality to their punk existence — the Lady makes an excellent paperweight, for example, while the Illusionist's cloak doubles as a computer screen cleaner.

Authors — Sarah Skeate and Nicola Tedman.
