Mitts, the Sock Cat by FamiliarOddlings Mitts, the Sock Cat by FamiliarOddlings
After making the sock monkey, I researched sock animals on Etsy and saw this adorable sock cat: [link] (click on it!! It's insanely adorable!) Inspired, I decided to try to make one myself, fumbling my way through without a guide. That was stressful! But I'm thinking of making some other animals now...

Made from a pair of children's socks, buttons for eyes, felt sewn on for paws and facial markings, and lastly fishing line for the whiskers. From paw to paw stretched lengthwise, it is ten inches.

Would you mind sharing the pattern? I am looking for a good pattern to use in Sewing Club (not for profit, I promise.) =3

I love it! I'm really into making sock creatures lately, and this just topped my list. I'd love to make one that looks like this!

Keep up the good work!

Thats adorable. It's cut so much character rather than looking like a generic sock animal.

And I agree with comment above, it is better than the Etsy one. Loads are done like the Etsy cat, but haven't seen any standing up like yours.
Brilliant!

Aww, the paw pads are such an adorable detail! And you've made an amazing job of the shape and how you got the socks' heels (or are they the toes?) to be in just the right places for the pattern. :)

Aww, this is wonderful! He can be friends with my Button Cat. I love the colours of the stripes on the socks you used. The face turned out just beautiful and of course I love the button eyes and the markings around them. I also like how you did the paws, very cute with the little felt pawpads!! I have often wanted to try making such animals but have yet to be brave enough. I hope this inspires me to. Keep making them!!!:blackrose:
