sock and glove

i saw this book on the web months ago but in Japanese. i'm so glad it's in English now. Super cute ideas for making stuffed animals out of socks and gloves (obviously). here's my first attempt.

it kinda looks like piglet from winnie the pooh, i think. one sugestion i have is to not use really stretchy socks or gloves. they have too much give and become stretched thin when stuffed. i think i'll raid the boyfriend's sock drawer for some tube socks and see if that works better. in my attempt to use everything and not throw anything away, this guy was stuffed with the sewing trash (thread ends, fabric cuttings, leftover bits of foam)

he's on his way to Vermont as well. they probably think i'm crazy for sending them so much stuff.
