Some old friends and I always exchange gifts at Christmas time. Because I have to fly to see my family for the holidays, I am usually pretty broke. This year was no exception, so I made these economical ugly sock dolls for everyone using 2 pairs of socks from the dollar store, some stuffing, and 2 packs of doll eyes I got at the craft store. 4 gifts for under $6 Smiley



I gave them each names and my sisters helped me develop some little stories for them. They are, from L-R: Chris, Bruno, Zorboink the Terrible, and Francis.

So cute, and I love that they've all got unique personalities!  Bruno is my favorite, although they're all great.

How come I never see dollar store socks in decent colors?  They're always neon pink when I go!  LOL!

Very cute!
I'm currently saving tons of socks to make a sock doll stall at the school fair. In fact, i'm planning to make a stall selling gifts made entirely from recycled materials, and ofering to do tutorials at the school for the kids!

Neon pink socks would make an awesome sock doll... You could give it a mohawk with some latchhook yarn Smiley

Superjodes - Teaching kids to do sock dolls would be really fun! Kids always come up with more interesting and crazy ideas than I ever could. Good luck with your recycled crafts stall--I think it will be a hit!
