I made these for the Sock Monkey Swap
. Usually I don't re-post what has already been posted in the swap boards, but I love these guys! I've made SMs before but I've never dressed them. For this lovely couple, I bought a 3 pack of socks and pretty much used all them. Very little scraps involved (happy!). I made them brown because redrinnie
prefers natural woodsy colors. And one of the themes she wanted was Roaring '20's. It was her first swap. From the photo shoot
she did with them I think she liked them. She named them Bradford and Olivia so here they are.
My fear of the hat was what kept them from getting out sooner. I think it came out OK. My husband think it makes him look like a hobo.
She looks super skinny, but that's cool because that was totally sexy back in the '20's. I know, I took a class on it.
The happy couple together:
I'm really happy with how they came out. Except the eyes. The eyes have no personality or feeling. I think if I had made the eyes better then they would really have come to life.
