From True Blood to Twilight, paranormal and mythical creatures are practically living among us. Now, with Diana Schoenbrun's Beasties: How to Make 22 Mischievous Monsters That Go Bump in the Night, these creatures actually can live among us!

About Beasties:
Welcome to the wondrous world of Beasties where mythic and imaginary creatures come alive using simple materials, such as scrap fabric and thread. There are witches and cyclops and zombies, oh my! From werewolves to yetis to unidentifiable yet adorable beasts, these projects allow crafters to push the limits of their imaginations to sew a menagerie of whimsical beings.

About the author:
Diana Schoenbrun received a BFA in illustration from Rhode Island School of Design. Her artistic interests began when she was a child, getting into trouble for drawing on the walls, coloring the family couch, and contaminating the washing machine with crayons. She lives in Brooklyn.
