Giraffey sock toy!


I would like you to meet my newest sock giraffe! He was designed by Claire who is a wonderful sock toy creator and designer. I bought her pattern a few weeks ago now and on Saturday whilst shopping with mum and Isabelle I went into Pumpkin Patch to see what trendy socks they had for sale. I was lucky enough to find this orange and gray pair for $4, and as luck would have it they turned out perfectly. These socks are a size 11 girls which would have fit Isabelle but they werent her colors so I grabbed them with giraffey in mind. That would also explain why his legs are short too but I like him just the way he is. I am so happy with him although he looks much better in real life than in his photo. Isabelle declared that I wasnt to gift him to anyone, hehehee. I seem to have a thing for orange lately too, first Poppy's top, the baby blanket I still havent finished and now giraffey! Now if you feel like making a giraffe, a sock monster or a cute little owl pop on over to Claire's and see her and her cute sock toys.
