I've been indulging recently in a new hobby. Making cute dolls from odd socks. Its really fun! I've tried it before, but my first few attempts were pretty poor. Luckily I've improved with extra practice.

Anyway this is Susan, a very refined Hippo lady. Its quite amusing really, you never know who is gonna pop out of the sock till you start stuffing its face. Susan was my third creation and my best so far.





This is Corky the quirky sock Kitty. I made him as a gift for my Mother who is currently recovering from surgery on a hernia.



I love the detailing on his little paws. He is my second creation and has a few flaws here and there, but I adore him none the less.



Finally I present Pinkie, the Hedgehog Pin Cushion. I was in dire need of a pin cushion because I kept losing all my pins in my craft draw. Now Pinkie sits on my desk being decorative and very useful.

I'd love some feedback  Cheesy

You are my sweetest downfall. I loved you first, I loved you first. Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth.

Feedback, you say?

How about..

GIVE ME THE KITTY NOW!

Seriously, I've wisted the allegedly imperfect feline and her pink pachyderm pal. They're fabulous!

They are all cute, but the hedgehog is my favorite! I feel the needle to reproduce it... for myself and for a swap angel project!

I swap, so in crafting terms I guess that means I put out... You?

Pretty much.  Cheesy

I'm so happy everyone likes my socky babies that much! Perhaps I'll make some more hedgehogs, they are really easy to make.

I 'this rocks'ed this.  Everyone can make sock critters, but these have real character.  Very cute!
