Retro Crafting Friday: Sock Dolls
I've acquired a number of retro crafting booklets lately as I'm preparing for a new retro holiday craft program for later this year. This McCall's Soft Toys pattern booklet from 1967 has really cute things , even if they are kind of elaborate. Look at the chick and duck version of the sock dolls shown below. Here's the description:
Mother duck and her two ducklings proudly go across their pond. Bodies are made from wool or orion stretch socks (so glad orion is not as prevalent...), then plumply stuffed with absorbent cotton - mother is about 8: long; babies, 6". Fabric and felt details are sewn on for durability.
