Sock Portrait of Lola the Boston Terrier

One of my customers sent me an email recently and asked “I wondered if you would be able to make a dog out of socks. Could you make one that looks like our Boston terrier Lola? I have attached a picture.”

She’s a lovely looking little soul with plenty of character so I definitely wanted to give it a try. Here she is…

I decided to sew her legs on using buttons so that there would be some movement and ability to pose her. Here she is sitting…

Lying down…

…and standing, albeit a little wobbly…

All in all I’m quite pleased with the result so I’m off to send the pics to Lola’s owner now to see what she thinks. Paws crossed!

    i LOVE LOVE LOVE this! you are so clever… would you be open to making another one off a photo of our dog? She’s a bit of a treasure – missing an eye, pretty old, but it would be very special to have a sock dog just like her 🙂 Let me know if this is possible – Thanks!
