Craft Schmaft

NEAT name... EVEN Neater designs by Claire Waring..

We all know the 'sock monkey' well, but incredibly talented fellow Aussie Claire Waring has taken sock softies to a new level and designed her own beautifully presented and packaged patterns and kits, each as adorable as the next! How cool is "Woof Woof" above made from a pair of plaid brown mens socks and coordinating designer fabric OR

"Mummy Owl"

and my favourite due to my youngest daughter being an absolute giraffe freak (maybe I can finally put away her giraffe security toy) - G-RAF!

Available for purchase here as kits including absolutely everything required to make these cuties (even the stuffing, needle & thread!) or as patterns for you to make your own sock and fabric choices. These would make a fabulous Xmas gift idea for the avid crafter or a gorgeous handmade children's or newborn gift certain to be treasured for years to come...

WARNING: Very addictive.. Once you start.. You won't want to stop!
