1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Ace the high flyin sock puppy on: July 21, 2009 12:15:28 AM
I've been lurking around here for a long time, but I think I'll actually post something. I made Ace the high flying sock puppy today. He is complete with a aviator cap and a scarf to keep him warm (and look cool flapping in the wind) whilst soaring in the blue skies.



I made Ace out of a pair of baby socks that I dug due to their awesome color scheme. His ears where made out of some white fleece because it was hard to make some decent ears out of that small of a piece of sock. The fluffy fleece looks pretty good sticking out of his aviator cap I think. While making ace I thought that his arms sticking out the way they did and the way he is looking up made him look like he wanted to be flying. So I looked up a pattern for making a people size aviator cap and adapted it for Ace. I made it out of a bit of vinyl I had lying about. His scarf is made of a scrap of red fleece. However, I think I'll change it to brown, because I am anal retentive and I think red messes up his color scheme.







The other thing I would like to do is make him some goggles. He is a little guy though and I'm having a hard time thinking of how to make the goggles. I was thinking of making them with cardstock. Possibly print and image and then attach something like a strip of vinyl or a small bit of elastic to make the band. Any ideas??
