Last night at about 11:45pm I had a sudden urge to make a Sock Donkey which was shown last week as part of Donktober. I just finished him tonight so here he is... another wonky donkey!
This is the first time I've made a Sock Donkey!! I didn't realise that one pair of socks would make such a large animal! You see, the tutorial used knee high socks so I thought if I used regular socks that the donkey would be smaller - well - not so much!
I've made sock puppets before but never a stuffed animal out of a pair of socks. Yay - I tried something new! I'm not happy with his 'arms' (= front legs) and how I've sewn them on... and maybe, just maybe, they are stuffed a little too full!!?? I love his tail - it is the cutest part of him! His mane is good too - I made a double one so he has more hair.
I would love to say 'no socks were hurt during the making of this donkey' but that would be a lie. I like to think they were 'improved'...
