Details of swap: SOCK &/or GLOVE Doll Swap

Some of us love to make dolls out of traditional materials and some are trying to reuse things they may already have. Whether you are an experienced Sock Monkey maker or new to the world of sock/glove doll-making, we'd love to have you join us.
This swap is one doll for one partner. No extras, no fancy-schmancy packaging - just a cute, well-made doll to swap.

Make something you would be proud to own or give to a treasured family member or friend. You can use old socks - but make sure they are clean and not too worn. You can use any material - wool, cotton, polyester - unless you're partner indicates a preference. You can embellish with any other materials but try to keep the store-bought accessories and decorations to a minimum, please.

TIPS: Check out any dollar or discount stores in your neighborhood for cute or novelty socks. Please don't spend lots of money on socks. Thrift stores (Goodwill or Salvation Army) also sell new, remainder socks. There are lots of books about stuffies and sock/glove doll-making. Go to your local library to see what's available. You can also look here on Craftster or Flickr for more ideas.

I will check profiles, per the new Swap Guildelines, so read them before sending a PM to me.

I sent in my info already.
With fall upon us, the stores will also have stretch gloves and other knit gloves that can be made into dolls and animals.  Check out this tutorial on how to make a doll from a stretchy glove (the one size fits all type).

i love making sock dolls-and i make them all the time-but im already a part of four swaps, so im not sure whether i should join this one or not. but then again on the other hand, i would prob send very early on this one because i do make them often. i love making bunnies especially and i made the coolest bat one recently.

I would absolutely love to have a personal swap! I'm interested in jewelry, soap, and anything that inspires you on my Pinterest

Then join us - I personally would love a bunny-bat. Or a bat-bunny!
