Wordful Wednesday: Stray Sock Pets

Angie over at 7 Clown Circus is hosting Wordful Wednesday, for those of us who can't post a picture without a caption.



My kids know me pretty well. When Wasabi Girl went to the bookstore with my husband to pick out a book for me for a Christmas gift, she picked out one she knew I'd like:



Stray Sock Sewing. How to make cute critters out of socks. Genius. Of course, who has the most stray socks in the house? Drama Girl. I don't think she's worn a pair of socks that matched for years now. She glommed onto the book right away and disappeared into her bedroom with it Christmas day. She came out later with this:


Within the next few days, she'd created a whole family:

I realized later that the one on the right is one of my socks. I think these two look like they could be characters in a children's book. I'm going to tell her she needs to write one now.

35 people stopped folding laundry to write:

Now... aren't those the cutest things ever! What a great idea and how fun!!!

Have a good week - Kellan

The Glamorous Life said...

She made those? Amazing. And yes they are adorable. Tell her to please write a book -then place them in mini scenes and photograph. Then upload to Shutterfly to make a book!!!

I am so impressed. So great.

Those are pretty neat! Do you think a 7 year old could manage that? We have TONS on mismatched socks here, too.

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

oh this idea I have to swipe- my kids will love this one!

Threeundertwo said...

I just realized she pulled a "Twilight" pose on me with her hands there. She's obsessed with those books right now.

Kimber said...

Those are so darn cute.

Elaine A. said...

I may have to look for that book. Too cute. Y'all are so creative. Looks like she needs an Etsy site! : )

Coloradolady said...

These are the cutest things ever!! How clever.

The ones around our house would be sorta boring..white socks for me and grey socks for my husband....I guess we could make ghost and donkeys!!
Love this idea however!

Rachael said...

what a cute idea for a gift, great idea!

Hootin' Anni said...

What a crafty gal!!!! Both you at making the critters and your daughter thinking, no KNOWING, just what you'd like.

My Wordful is an update on Winston's Ladybug stool. Come on over if you can, I so love visitors and their comments!!! Happy day to you.

Lily Boot said...

awesome! I love it when they click onto something and within days a whole world is created.

Laura said...

I kind of miss that elf.
Maybe these guys could do a little skit each week to entertain your audience.
C'mon.
You know you want to.

Susie said...

Great pictures of a great idea:-)

Jenni Jiggety said...

Those are GREAT!!!!

Steph said...

First - I miss the elf.

Second - I'm now on a mission to find and procure this book. Our house has crazy amounts of stray socks. Plus baby socks that no one here will ever wear again. (Stop the tears, Steph. Three is enough.)

IOW, I NEED that book. Right?

Goddess in Progress said...

Wow, she's got the crafty gift! So cute!

Lorina said...

Wow.. Very cute! I really need to buy this book! {For my children of course.} :)

Brenda said...

Those are great! What a creative girl

What A Card said...

Wow, she's really talented...those are amazing!

What fun!

Cheryl Lage said...

Hmmm, seems the artistic apple fell quite closely to the talented tree....

A children's book (or aminated series) is very much in order...

angie said...

Those sock critters are so cute!

Live.Love.Eat said...

Those are adorable, never seen them before! Thank you for your good luck wishes!

blueviolet said...

Yes, you could start a little book series. They're so cute!

BoufMom9 said...

Those are adorable!!!
OMGosh! Going to have to go to Amazon right now and order that book! I have an entire laundry basket FULL of stray socks!!!!
Happy WW!

Lindsay-ann said...

Those sock creations are wonderful. My 12 year old (Jessica) loves them. I will have to look out for that book because we have so many odd socks here we could make a whole zoo out of them! Please get Drama girl to write the book. That would be great.

Des said...

wow! love a crafty adolescent!!
Those are awesome! I want that book...........it wasn't in MY stocking.

Michelle said...

Those are way too cute!

Annie said...

super cute!

avtcoach said...

I'm new you your site from WW and thank you for visiting my place today. Of course I was first curious about your blog name. Yikes, I was really impressed with the 3 under 2 concept...then saw they were older now..a little more relaxed..then I thought about what that means for you in about three years...as teens..okay, now I am back to being really impressed! This was a fun post, my daughter all through high school never wore matching socks, her take on it was that if she wore them unmatched, she never had to worry about matching the laundry. :) These sock people are cute and your daughter is very creative! wonder what she will do with the now stray sock that is in your sock drawer! :)

Klucky said...

Wow. she's got some talent doesn't she (wonder where on Earth she gets that from, eh)?
It's probably a good thing I don't have your address or else there would be a rather large package on it's way to you full of stray socks! (As cute as that is goodness knows I don't have time to make them myself!)
;)

Nicole said...

Kellie said...

Shan said...

Totally cute. I have to get that book!
