Sock wildlife

Hello everyone,

I hope you all had a nice week!

 I helped out at my school sports day yesterday, that was fun :) And today was textiles club :D It was only me today as I think the other years had exams but the teacher said I could make a sock toy from a book the textiles department just bought. It was called Stray sock sewing and there was tons of cute creatures to make in it but I chose a little sock piggy. I made about half in school and then when I got home I finished him off :0) Here he is....


Hehehe :P I decided to call him Sid, the sock pig!

After I finished sid I had the urge to make another sock animal but this time I thought I would make up my own design, using a similar construction method. I came up with Sock shark:


Just when you thought it was safe to rummage around in your sock draw...... lol!

It is quite amazing just how much you can do a couple of socks really :-) I might try another animal out of the book next week, I will look for some good socks at the weekend! If you want to try some sock animals I reccomend looking in £1 shops as they often do packs of different socks for £1 and usually they are kids socks so are super-bright coloured!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend,

See you all soon,

Bye XXXxxxXXX <3 <3
