Everybody here is gentle except for one for two who are just dicks, so if you ever run across them, just don't pay attention. You sockie is just adorable and looks just fine to me. I can't see how you did anything wrong. Tutorials are not always meant to be followed to the "t" anyway, just to show you how it's mostly done and then you tweek it for yourself. I can always figure out how to make it easier, I think that's the laziness in me. LOL Great job and keep on keepin' on
That is so cute and beautifully embroidered. Here's a thought: Make a different sized one each year for Christmas. You could even make them some the bottom is open and they could nestle just like the wood ones.
The watch came from a dollar store one that was a bracelet type. You could also use a ladies pocket watch. I got one a couple of years ago at WM for about $6. I also used nylon coated wire for the necklace so that it would be strong.
