Tights Snail

January 24, 2012

Caitlin has grown out a whole load of tights, severals of which have barely been worn. I decided to try and make a few toys out of them along the lines of the sock dragon and sock reindeer. So I introduce the first creature a snail! No pattern I’ve just made it from scratch.

The snail shell uses one leg of the tights and the body is made from the top section of the tights. With these tights it lead to a stripey shell and plain body which I quite like. I finished the snail with a button nose, beads for the eyes and felt tentacles on her head.

What next? I’m thinking that a snake is almost too easy, though I might encourage Caitlin to make one. I’ve seem some sock octopus so maybe an octopus, or a giraffee with its long neck. Watch this space!
