Sarah Skeate, is an illustrator with a steampunk fetish who just happens to work in publishing.

Nicola Tedman is a model maker for theater and television.
A wonderful combination of Victorian aesthetic and modern crafting, these eight adorable stuffed creations make perfect gifts or accessories for the thousands of dedicated steampunk fans.

Sarah Skeate and Nicola Tedman offer crafters an array of charmingly raffish characters insideSteampunk Softies: 8 Scientifically Minded Dolls From a Past That Never Was. 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. Steampunk is an artistic movement that includes stories involving steam-powered versions of modern technology in a fictionalized Victorian setting.

Staying true to steampunk style, Skeate and Tedman's inventive Steampunk Softies feature prominent science fiction and fantasy elements, as well as anachronistic inventions and props. In addition, many have dual roles that add practicality to their punk existence--the Lady makes an excellent paperweight, while the Illusionist's cloak doubles as a screen cleaner.

Despite their meticulous detailing, Steampunk Softies are simple enough for even a sewing novice to construct. A short biography accompanies each softie, providing a background story for each character. Also included are a complete list of supplies, illustrated step-by-step blueprints, and a handy, back-of-the-book reference section that provides tips on aging and distressing project materials.

Venture full steam ahead into your next crafting project with Steampunk Softies.
