I'm sorry to say that, once again, I've left the making of the new creature until 10 o'clock at night. I'm a morning creator. My goal, however, is a sock creature a day for 30 days, and I will see it through. This one actually looks far too tame to be called a creature. Yesterday's looked like a harlot. Today's looks like baby toy. I'm almost ashamed to show it. I promised to show the good and the bad, though, so here it is.
Turns out she is a gymnast. I dropped her and look how she landed:
I did get to try out some of the safety eyes and a nose on this one. For some reason these are called safety eyes, but the package says they are not intended for children under three because of small parts. I have searched the net for safe safety eyes, but they don't seem to exist. In any case, my first time using these was the larger cats eyes on #3, "Aunty." It makes me nervous to cut the hole in the fabric to insert the stem. With these small eyes, it was particularly nerve wracking. I think the pressure of starting a project at 10 at night that I really want to finish THAT day might be contributing to the nerves.
Okay, goal #5 is complete! I've named her Mary Kay in honor of that cosmetics lady with a thing for pink. Starting tomorrow I promise to put the creature into my sock creatures.
