So my bff and I are looking around for a christmas stall to craft for  so that we can give the proceeds to a wonderful homeless charity in our area. She has made about a million sock bunnies and I'm woefully behind. It seems I only like to do one offs, which makes for slow going and way too much love in each creature. My husband has half convinced me that I love them too much to sell them. sigh  Wink.

onto photos!




The black and white guy is made of some childrens socks and is super soft and his face is what happens when you sit down at your sewing machine and refuse to leave till you're done, dammit. (even to look how a sock monkeys face on the internest was out of the question!) Smiley

the kitty and the red guy are my forays into crocheting and I'm liking it very much. now if I could only learn to count my stitches so arm and leg lengths match!

thanks for looking. any help appreciated.

Too cute! Grin
Keep up the good work with the crocheting - it gets easier to count as you learn! Cheesy

I like the monkey's face. Sometimes it's good not to cloud your own creativity by looking how everyone else is doing it, right?! It's better to go with your own instincts!

Very cute stuffies.  I am in the sock/glove swap and was looking for patterned/striped sox and just couldn't find any.  Look how nice it looks done up.
