ummm, He is about 15 cm / 6 in high as I used toddler socks.  I think if you use adult socks he would sit about 30 cm / 12 in high.

The book I borrowed is "Stray sock sewing, too" 

So much easier than I thought it would be, I am going to try the monkeys and frogs next Wink

I borrowed a book from our local library which has tutorials for making animals out of socks.  So I thought I would give one a go (of course I chose one of the 'advanced' animals for my first attempt. 

Here is my little stripy sock elephant


I learnt a lot with this one:
a, don't use toddler socks - they are too small and fiddly
b, when in doubt, use more stuffing

Any C & C welcome

Oh, I would like to join in.  I haven't done a swap yet and this would be a great way to put my toe in the water Smiley
5  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Periodic Table Cake on: February 18, 2011 01:10:59 PM
This is awesome!  I am a science teacher too and this would be great when teaching the periodic table Smiley

My kids are currently doing an assignment to build a 3D cell, and I hope I have dropped enough hints that at least a couple of girls make it with cake, chocolate, icing or jelly.
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Re: Hooded Sleeping Bag for Doxies (Updated with Tutorial and More Doxie Shots) on: February 15, 2011 07:59:24 PM
we have a mini doxie call Daisy, and she spends so much time rearranging our blankets and pillows to make herself nests, some of them have been permanently donated to her!

I'll be making a little sleeping bag following your tutorial, I am sure she will love it.  I was thinking of putting a hood at each end, that way she can get into it herself, but keep her rear end warm as well.  

I had previously made her a coat and when she doesn't have it on, she carries it around to sleep on it in the room I am in.  She will need a new one this winter as she also uses it as a chew toy.
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Had some time yesterday, so made a little bag on: February 10, 2011 01:53:26 AM
Its not the best photo, but I had some time yesterday so I thought I would try my hand at making a bag with no pattern or tutorial to see how it went.

It has an external pocket but no internal pocket as I realised the bag was a bit smaller than I intended.  It would be a great little bag for one of my girls I think.  It measures 20cm high and about 15cm wide (8*6)

Any comments are welcome Smiley

(sorry for the awful photo)

10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Easy peasy Handbag on: January 29, 2011 04:20:17 PM
My husband went out friday night and my girls went to bed easily and on time so I was looking at a whole evening by myself.  So I thought I would try to make a handbag in one night. 

I found scraps of fabric that coordinated (I hope!) and started sewing.  Even with a few distractions on TV and my computer I was able to finish it off, and only the flower embellishment was done the next morning.  I'm pretty happy with how easy it was done in the end.
