so we've all seen or probably made a sock monkey...well, i took a shot at it too, and made some friends to accompany him. meet my argyle friend ibrahimovic and his flowery pink friend 河馬2號 (hippo no. 2):
another view of hippo no. 2
why is he hippo no. 2? because 河馬 (hippo) is right here. he's supposed to be a white dog, but while i was sewing him my boyfriend's mom came in and said in chinese, "oh...you are making a hippo, right?" *falls over* she thought the black cat in the picture was a mouse too. cat's name is miau.
miau's cousin, which has no name because my mom took it as soon as i finished. "eh, so cute! how about you give this one to mommy?? " what can i say? she really likes hello kitty...
my sister also saw ibrahimovic and demanded i make her one...two, actually. one for her and one for her boyfriend.
the socks were old and so their heads were shaped like feet, so i took some gloves and made them hats:
thanks for looking!
