Sock Cthulu



Inspired by http://www.nostarch.com/snipburn.htm
Made a sock Cthulu, made a few modifications.
-Used knee socks

-created arms from top part of second sock


-trimmed toe of second sock to make the head a little smaller
-added a contrast lining to mouth tentacles




-amazingly sweet wings.






If you'd like to make one here are the lessons I've learned:
-when sewing around wire with a sewing machine, make sure you have a zipper foot.
-check your seams
-it's okay to trim things down. the legs got really long, and the crotch could have been higher.
-make sure everything is placed the way you want it before sewing it together. (I'm not telling what I messed up, but it's there...)

And...
Cthulu is adorable.
