We’ve started watching ‘The Walking Dead’ in Thesockgarden house and we’re completely hooked. It’s so tense-making and incredibly addictive. So addictive that Mr. Sock has been sketching zombies and I’ve made myself a sock zombie bunny…
- comin’ to get ya…
I came up with a novel way of making rather revolting innards. I used pieces of sheer tights filled with stuffing and snippets of red thread with random sewing and thread binding to make them look like guts, popping eyes, brains… you get the idea!
guts and wounds!
is it dinner time yet?
I really enjoy making these kind of sock creatures – it’s a good opportunity to do messy sewing and cut holes on purpose! What kind of zombie should I try next – I quite fancy doing a crazed dog. Any other suggestions?
This little monster is for my collection of misfits but if anyone wants something similar making do leave a comment here or nip over to my Folksy OddSox shop and send me an email.
As I’ve just signed up to the Folksy Pro-Account which is a set fee to cover all listings made within a one year period, I’ve been using this opportunity to do some batch listing. My first two sessions include some new Sock Bunnies and some cute smiley Sock Dollies. Nearly all of them are available at my OddSox Folksy shop if you’d like to take a look at these and other Sock Animals.

I was recently lucky enough to win two giveaway prizes from Issue Five of the most excellent magazine ‘oh comely’.
A lovely rabbit egg cosy from The Linen Cat.
and an adorable felted hen egg cosy by Seren Stacey
And here they both are being put to good use keeping our eggs warm!
If you enjoy a good read and a chance to win some unique handmade gifts then oh comely definitely fits the bill. This is what they say about themselves. Nip over to their site to find out more…
“oh comely is a magazine about people and their quirks and their creativity, rather than money and what it can buy.
It’s a magazine that inspires people to be creative, talk to their neighbours and explore new things, rather than buy stuff or lose weight. Imagine sitting down with a cup of tea and a creative friend to hear all the strange things she says, all the curious stuff she does, and about the things she loves.”
