What to Do with a Spare Sock and a Spare Afternoon


What do I love about these little guys?

Not that they’re zero-waste and made with recycled materials.

Not that I didn’t have to buy a single thing to make ’em, thanks to odds and ends from my craft drawer and dryer.

Not that I found something useful to do with a couple of mismatched lone socks and gloves.

Not that it settled any lingering concerns about giving away tons of the kids’ toys (with their help) and wondering if they’d find stuff to play with.

Nope, none of those nice things.

What I love about these little guys is that I spent all afternoon sewing them by hand together with my little guys, who are quite proud of themselves.

Inspired by Sock and Glove, which we borrowed from the library.
