Last week someone asked me if I had any Sock Badgers for sale. I didn’t, and hadn’t made one before so I Googled off to do a bit of badger image research so that I could have a go at making one.
Some of the pics I’d been looking at were for the dear little creatures from Kenneth Grahame’s enchanting story The Wind in the Willows. So when badger was finished I thought I’d quite like to have a go at making his friends too.
Now I have a full set and they’re all dressed up too in little outfits made from bits of leftover sock, fleece, ribbon, buttons and fabric.
Mole even has a wee pair of wire specs! (He’s my favourite).
I’ve really enjoyed creating these soft characters. If anyone has any ideas of other famous and cute creatures I could try making, I’d love to hear your suggestions.
