These fun chaps were supposed to be sock monsters but they just aren’t at all scary. In fact, they are so cute it hurts me to look at them so I think they must be banished to the sock drawer from wence they came! (They didn’t really, they are brand new non-smelly socks).
This is something of a brand new obsession for me and I can’t seem to stop making them, which is unfortunate because I should really be making up a stock of birds for the upcoming craft fairs. There are so many possibilities and since making these two at the start of the week, I’ve made a further two that are entirely different despite being fashioned from the other sock in each of the pairs. It’s so much fun seeing your creation come to life, it’s a bit addictive.
This happy chap is known to his other sock friends as Ben the Bovine. His peculiarly dimpled lips make him look somewhat like a cow and he is teased daily for this unfortunate feature. In reality he is a sheep (or at least that’s what our three year old thinks) and he needs a loving home where he can be supported in the pursuit of baa-ing.
Sergeant Slim here at your service…stiff upper lip and no messing around. See the thin yet ever so carefully crafted moustache? He spends hours every morning grooming his facial hair. Those who know him better, see a twinkle in his eye though and we all know that when no-one’s looking he’s as batty as the rest of the sock creatures.
These and the other sock creatures I create will be on sale at the craft fairs we’re attending this winter…details soon.
