I spied these on Pinterest the other day…
And decided to give them a go with BigSmall, who is 4.
This is our version…
Not quite as cute as the others I will admit, but BigSmall was chuffed to bits with it!
We want to make a whole family of them-a daddy one from one of hubby’s socks, a mummy one from one of mine etc.
They are a work in progress at the moment, and need a little refining, but the basic idea is to stuff an old sock with the other sock in the pair, or some fabric scraps, or a plastic bag. Tie a ribbon or some wool or an elastic band around the neck , and then cut up to make the legs! We (I) found it easier to sew the eyes and mouth on first, although I am also going to experiment with buttons and copydex to see if they will stick!
PS. This post serves a double purpose, and is also my entry in the May Pinaddict’s Challenge (sneaky hey!). The linky is open-have you linked up yet?!
