Aranzi Aronzo's Cute Dolls and Fun Dolls books are fabulous! I just got them.

I have the Plush-O-Rama book, it has good instructions so you can make a plush step by step. I found that useful 'cause I'd never made one before! I have a post in the completed section showing one of the creatures I made using the book.
A few days ago I bought 'Plush You' and that's really good for inspiration as it has loads of pictures but only has tutorials on some of the plushies...
Oh and I'm hoping to get the 'Softies' book for Christmas, last time I checked it wasn't available to the UK yet  Cry Does anyone have that book? Is it any good?

My pal gave me "Plush You", you should check out the woners blog for more ideas. Aranzi Aronzo's books are fun too. Be carefull not all of them come with a lot of patterns....

That Plushie book looks great, I want it!!

I have the Softies book: http://www.jetmusicandbooks.com.au/index.php?act=viewProd&productId=1415&ccSID=92c1fd8f6dcef6941d3f51eac56e1e30

And I really, really like it. I've made probably half the patterns in the book, and used some as bases for ones I've created myself. I recommend it!
