I finally finished the stuffed dino for Mayhem.
It’s a brachiosaurus
Though it bears a striking resemblance to the Loch Ness Monster in my mind
Attempts at stuffed spikes did not work out as hoped
Havoc wanted a ninja (Havoc always wants a ninja). The sock ninja proved more challenging than the crochet version
Sort of a ninja penguin really. but Havoc loves that he has throwing stars.
I took the opportunity of having so much stuffing available to fix our very first sock animal, Silly Dog
Mayhem made him in vacation bible school a couple years ago. He’s just a tube sock decorated with spots by Mayhem with a face glued on. I regularly have to reglue the eyes. The boys prefer google eyes to safety eyes or buttons. Silly Dog was initially stuffed with beans, which mean a thorough replacement of beans should he ever get wet. He had a juice cup spilled on him & ignored a few months ago and when I found it I set him aside to be dealt with later. This week I emptied him of beans and gave him a good hot bath in the sink with antibac soap. When he was dry I reglued his parts with washing safe glue and stuffed him with fiber fill. Mayhem loves it! “Now Swilwy Dog bounces instead of flwopping”
Havoc, quite rightly pointed out that Mayhem currently has 3 stuffed toys to his one, so I am working on a sock cat for him and the next time DH buys socks I will purloin one for Havoc to make his own version of Silly Dog. Since he buys the exact same socks every time, one going missing won’t be noticed.
I am still working on my cross stitch project as well
I’ve just reached the halfway point. The finished piece will be about 12”x10”
Does it look blue ish to you? I had my monitors calibrated together but I just noticed that it looks bluer on my laptop monitor than on my flatscreen & I am wondering which has gone off.
