This purple dog's square face makes it look a bit like a Scottie dog. (I'll have to make one like this from a black sock sometime)
And this sweet little hound dog is made from a pair of beige crew socks. I used a shank-style button for the nose and ended up needing to hot glue it into place to prevent it from flopping around. I ended up gluing the eyes down while I was at it.
This dog's destination is a community gift basket kind of thing for Esther, a little, 3-year-old Amish girl who broke her leg and will be in a full body cast for some time. To cheer up little Esther the Amish community in my town is putting together a "Sunshine Box". It will consist of inexpensive toys that are individually wrapped. The idea is for her to open one a day. I found out about it through some of my church friends who are friends with some of the Amish families in the area. I hope this little sock dog will help brighten Esther's days as she recovers.
