Sock Doll Workshop: 30 Delightful Dolls to Create and Cherish

Front Cover
Lark Books, 1995 - Crafts & Hobbies - 112 pages
Sock dolls aren't what they used to be! Although as simple as ever to make, this collection of 30 charmers features original design elements that bring a whole new level of interest to a popular craft. Create one (or a whole friendly crowd) of sock dolls using a pair or two of socks, a needle and thread, and a little yarn and stuffing. In no time at all (and at almost no expense), reap the pleasure of crafting delightful characters such as Heidi the downhill skier, a cuddly bear, Merry Anne the carrot-topped rag doll, the teen-age sweater twins, or Costume Kids-dolls dressed like a lion and a dinosaur! Each of the 30 projects specifies the kind of socks and notions you'll need, and is presented with clear directions and illustrations that even beginners can follow. In addition, you'll find drawings of types of stitches to use, suggestions about how to paint or sew faces, hints for stuffing, for creating hair-even tips on shopping for socks. If you can thread a needle, you can make a sock doll. The only hard part is deciding which of these irresistible pals to make first! Book jacket.
