Playing with socks

My daughter Aleysha asked me to make a Sock Monkey for her baby, I had never seen any so she told me to Google them.
She then bought a load of socks and toy stuffing, so not much of a chance to say NO
So I did and they are so cute, I looked at a few tutorials and just had to have ago I made these today
 This one is made out of a pair of ladies ankle socks, So easy to do, made a few mistakes that I am not happy with, but it was a learning one, the next ones that I will be making for my grandsons will be a lot easier, now I know what I am doing 
 Here is a close up of her face, I used felt for the eyes instead of buttons, because my granddaughter is only 9 months old
This one is a cat made out of fluffy bed socks, My daughter thought it was a cow, I told her its a tabby cat ROFL
Again I stitched the eyes , as this will be for the baby to play with.
these are such fun to do and very easy to make, I used a machine but they can be hand sew easily

rag quilt number 2

 Here is another rag quilt that I have made,
This one is larger than the baby one I did, you can see the post with photos underneath this one.
This one is just the right size for popping over your lap to snuggle into while watching tv.
I love the combination of blues and browns

 here i have a close up of the rag edges, and below you can see that I have used the same patch for the underneath.
Enjoyed making these quilts so much, I am thinking of making another baby one in pink for my nephews baby due in April
