I love this little guy, and he’s only partly finished. He’s created from a single sock.
The stripes are woven into this cotton sock; they’re not just printed on the fabric. That can make a big difference when designing a sock doll… though I’ll admit that the printed-on designs offer more creative inspiration, at times!
I think this one’s going to be a little punker, with a pink-ish mohawk. Or maybe not. I’m not sure yet. I’ll let him decide.
Mostly, I think he’s absolutely adorable.
(He’s sitting in a plastic sandwich-sized storage container. He’s about nine inches tall.)
I generally post this kind of art at one of my other websites, under my Aisling D’Art pen name.
But… well, I just wanted to share this photo with you. He’s a real sweetie, and – when he’s completed – he’ll be going to a family member for Christmas.
