If you were here back in July you might remember this post about a sock tiger I was planning on making for who was then known as “baby” and not Eli.
Well, friends, I must admit that I did not make sock tiger until… well… umm… this week.
He didn’t turn out too shabby, if I do say so myself.
Don’cha want to cuddle him? I did. Last night. But I did not bring him to cuddle in bed with me (my husband was very thankful for that).
You may notice that Sock Tiger does not have any eyes yet. That is because I want Eli to be able to cuddle his tiger himself before the age at which I won’t be worrying about button swallowing and whatnot. What do you think? Is there a safe way to attach his eyes without needing to worry about rogue buttons?
*Edit: If you would like to make your own Sock Tiger, I would encourage you to check out or buy the book Stray Sock Sewing, Too by Daniel (no, he really doesn’t have a last name on the book… does he even have one?? He has to, right?). I purposely did not put the instructions up here out of love for books and their authors.
