I thought I'd share some of my rats with you! I love making these little guys - they're kinda my trademark critter!

Here's Mitch the tattooed rat

I've seen sock monkeys, sock elephants, sock dogs... But never a sock rat! These guys are definitely rats I wouldn't mind having in my house! Their names are great, too. I love the way you've used the sock detail to make Mich into a tough guy Wink
Did you use a pattern at all?


@Gearwe I thought they were Clangers when I saw them on the front page!

Nope! No pattern. They're stitched by hand and each one is different! I hadn't heard of clangers, but yeah, I guess they DO look like them!

oh my goodness these are so cute! I might try to make one for my sister now. She and I both had rats growing up (brother and sister caged separately.) and she was so upset when stargirl died a few years ago. I think she would love a little sock one.

Very cute and adorable! I love the feet and tail, and the rat in a bikini is totally priceless!

Very cute little critters.  I have a thing for sock animals at the moment.  I'm especially trying to pay attention to how people use the design of the sock in the overall look.  You've done this very well - I presses 'this rocks' and I'm now off to see what these 'Clangers' things are about.
