Here they are. All eleven. Three days in the making. So they can be given away to kids as party favours at my son’s school. He is going to be four tomorrow and the kids are celebrating today. Why? Because when I made them last year some parents told me that their kid will only sleep with their sock buddy. Even though as I was making the eleventh one I felt like “just shoot me please”, I enjoyed the whole process. I especially liked putting on their faces, each of them have a different look. Even the ones that turned out looking like cats, still have very distinct mugs.
I was joking last year that each sock talked to me and told me what animal it wanted to be. And there was some truth to that. This year, all the socks were screaming “I’m a cat, make me a cat!” I guess I must be missing my dearly departed BooBoo, maybe that’s my way of immortalizing his lovely catness…
But there are also other animals, some of them even inspired by real creatures:
Here’s more pictures:
All packed up and ready to go.
