Somehow I found this…..did someone tell me about it?…..could have been……………………..
The link I was given by someone, some day, was for a snowman. An adorable little snow person that will brighten anyone’s day. When I went down to the store for my day out Margery already had her men/women done.
These have to be the cutest. I borrowed one and came home with great plans. It took me two days to go out and buy the socks and on a Friday evening I sat in the living-room, fiddling and fooling around. I made four in no time flat. The noses aren't on. I was going to cut them with side cutters.................by the way, I made them from a skewer, painted it and ....................Karl cut them apart on the band saw.
Okay complete description on how to do the noses. The above is rather vague.
I took a meat skewer, painted it orange and then put in in the pencil sharpener. I marked it off from the tip at 3/4" and gave it to Karl to cut them apart. I kept doing the same thing with the same skewer until I couldn't fit it in the pencil sharpener anymore. I did get all the noses you see from one skewer. I had to repaint the tip, but that took seconds. How did I hold it? I placed an old pin in the flat end and held onto that. I used Folk Art paint. I then glued it on with tacky glue from Aleene's. You could use a glue gun, if you wanted to, but watch how much glue you use.
Okay to fill them. I took craft beads about a 1/4 cup and put that in the base first. Then I filled with stuffing. And I really, really filled them. Those socks will stretch a lot. You can wiggle the base and have them stand flat and they will stand on their own.
I bought my socks at Bonnie Togs. I don't know if this is just a Canadian chain of children's wear stores. Anyway, they were just children's socks. They fit Morgan but then and again, she isn't a big 12 year old. Going to take after her Mom......a little shorty.
Well, I posted this on Facebook and lo and behold, our daughter in law requested 3 of them. No surprise there. I made these for her. No noses again! but they were there when I gave them away.
Gee, good add for Sony there.
