dachshund sock dog

I made this silly dachshund sock dog for my little buddy Jack, who turned one year old today.

There isn't a pattern in Sock and Glove for this dog, but you can follow the basic rules of the zebra pattern with a couple of modifications (lengthen the torso, leave off the mane, etc.), and by the end, you'll have a cute little dachshund.



Happy birthday Jack!

That's really good. My Mother made a stuffed dog for my brother when he was a kid. He's 41 now and still has that dog. :)

in the last picture, it looks like the dog is smiling. But do you have a cat version of this?

I love your site. As the owner of a dachshund I was pleased to see your sock toy. You create wonderful things.

Oh
My
Goodness

I absolutely love your sock dog. I am a huge fan of sock monkeys (sock monkey photo album) and was planning on making sock rabbits, but this dog has now taken top priority in my sock animal queue. Thanks for sharing!!

might I add...? said...

You have some cute things here.

Keep in mind that for baby toys, eyes/noses/etc. should not be made of any material that can come off, such as buttons. They are potential choking hazards, and could cause a baby to die.

A much better plan is to embroider eyes on.

Hi!
I'm intrigued by your sock pets--I took a look at the Sock and Glove book on Amazon, but I'm unable to determine...anyhow, here's what I need to know:

I'm craft-challenged. I tend to mess up crafts that are complex. Really bad. In ways that the original pattern-maker/idea person could never imagine. It's been a lifetime of "lack of talent" for me, unfortunately. And I don't have a sewing machine, but I can sew a button on something...do you think the sock animals would be something I could do, or should I leave it to people who were born with a crafty talent?

Jill,

Sarah and I are thinking about getting a real dachshund someday (maybe soon). We need to get a fence first. This guy is the coolest!
