About those Sock Creatures

from my last post...


Let me start by introducing you to my daughter Chelsea. She has inherited the craft/baking/sewing gene from her mom (I'm happy to say).


Can you see the gene???


I think Kelly and Chelsea (cousins) look more like the same gene pool... (Kelly has the craft/baking /sewing gene too. I'm digressing...)



I brought this book home called Stupid Sock Creatures by John Murphy. When Chelsea came home for the weekend she saw the book, loved it and wanted to make one. She doesn't mess around; soon we were both happily bumping into each other in my sewing room (I'll show you my projects in the next post)!


First Chelsea made the Creature with pink hearts , went to a movie, then stayed up until 3:00 making a second one! Where does she get the energy! She happily packed them off to college with her...

They are so cute!!! I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!

Oh those are deliciously, hilariously fun! Were they easy to make? My 2-year-old, who loves stuffed toys, would dig one, or two, or three of those. I can see it now, funny little sock heads poking out of his Christmas stocking.

Those are really adorable! She'll probably have them right on her bed. That's neat how you do things together. It's great to have daughters that grow up to be friends! Karen
