plush kitty

Socks are fantastic things, they keep your footsies warm and they can also be used to make toys (after they have had a good go in the washing machine of course). I made this lil chap out of those socks with the bits for your toes to go in, possibly the most annoying sock around when you think about it ^_^ gloves can be fiddly enough. He was made for another friends birthday (thats the way my gifts are going, crafty!), hes got button eyes and I used that transfer paper stuff you get for t-shirts to make his mouth, it made me reaslise that my sewing is not that good so mucho practicing to do I think. I recyled the toe parts Id cut off to make him some little paws and hes full of wool and lentils so hes got a nice plump bum hehe ^_^ I am really pleased with him! so much so I nearly didnt give him away, but I have been collecting plenty more long stripy socks to make some more very soon!!

yay sock cats! i think i will have to put an order in for a ginger type coloured one or a black and white one! they are fab and the idea of using the transfer tshirt stuff is great. dx
