Here's my first trio of sock creations....the Zombie was my first, followed by the yellow and green one (which is in local football team colours) and the black one I haven't quite finished. I'm now trying to make a pumpkin out of orange pajama bottoms...it's taken me the best part of 3/4 of a day just to hand sew the main shape....I don't have a sewing machine Wink

What fun.

Miss JG made some "sock monkeys" a few years ago for her little cousins.

She made one as a template first and he hangs around the house. At one time he lived downstairs and the lady who does our cleaning once a week would leave it in different positions on different bits of furniture.....wrapped round the music stand on the piano or on the bottom of a lamp stand!

Love the zombie!
The doors in our draughty house bang quite a lot so DD2 made sock slugs with eyes and hair for everyone's rooms.

Love those! Several odd socks seem to be lingering at the bottom of the washing basket so I may see who they can be turned into...

Puppets for LMC are also a good idea for old socks.
