Do you like my sock doll she has go to bed eyes and hot lips well sort off. She is made from a sock cut up the middle from the toe to almost the heel sewn from one side of the cut around to the other making a horseshoe shape this forms the legs.Turned the right way and stuffed gather the top of the sock after cutting of the elastic top and that is the head. A scalf or ribbon can be tied around the neck area mine has a jumper cut from a leg warmer that has an elastic top this forms the neck. Next from another sock cut from the top of the sock down to about the heel for the arms sew up and stuff sew arm to body before dressed or after the jacket is made. There are better instructions on the internet with pictures if you search for sock doll. The eyes and lips are made from felt. She is now asking me for a boyfriend. I was inspired to make this doll having looked at the blog Doll Stories by Netamir. Her dolls are made from old jumpers and socks they are really good. As I dont have a supply of of old jumpers and I dont knit I made the clothes from my supply of old teashirts and fabric stash. If you click on the title it will take you to Doll Stories.
