Finally, my Little Handmade Sock Dolls
Shame on me ... for again being so late. Apologies to anyone waiting to see the little handmade sock doll I made for a friend last month.
Above are two handmade sock dolls I made. I found the original idea on pinterest, but I changed her pattern to fit my own needs. I wanted to have little arms off to the side, and this left a tummy in the middle too. (I'll have to see if I can find that pin, as she has the instructions for making the sock dolls already written out.)
The bigger doll is made from a regular girls sock. The smaller doll is made from a ruffly toddlers sock. I like things in mini scale. You know that if you've seen my sculpey's.
I crocheted a little scarf to go around them. On mine, a small purple ribbon adorns her hat, and on the small one, the pink yarn made into a bow for her hat.
Both handmade sock dolls have movable eyes glued on them. The small one is sweet because her eyes have blue lids with lashes too. I forgot to take a picture of her closeup.
As I like to do for all of my creations, I had to tube it and use it in my artwork as well.
And this picture is my finished creation for my artwork.
Since I usually make flowers, I had my sock dolls placed on a stack of them.
I hope you enjoy looking at them.
Hope you're having a wonderful weekend, and I'll be back shortly to post a little more.
P.S. Due to finances being extremely tight (my husband lost his job), I've had to take down my website at EasyAsPieDailyGraphics.com. It's okay. I had been thinking of taking it down anyway.
