This week, I've been making sock animals!
It all started with this post on Homemade by Jill.
I hadn't made anything like this before, so did a practise one with some old socks.
After I had had a practise and was confident I could do it, I bought some new socks to make some with and made both types of rattles.
I love making things for other people, and these sock animals are going to a friend's little daughter.
This is a great sewing project, and even better, you don't have to use a machine! The bell inside the head to make it rattle is pure genius, well done Jill!
This morning, I went fabric shopping! I don't go that often, so it's always a treat to go. :)
Have a look at the yummy fabric I bought!
This size of fabric is called a craft stick.
They're this big!
I also bought some fabric by the metre, and some matching ribbon. I might use it to make a skirt to enter into Crafterhours' Skirt Week!
Expect projects with yummy fabric to come soon!
