Hurray, my sewing mojo is back, especially into sewing animal plush toy from socks. I hope the inspiration keeps flowing in as I have many animals related craft on my to-sew list. Craft design is so fun when the inspiration starts flowing in. Just a little tweak from the previous pattern Sock Unicorn Whale, here comes a new pattern of sea creatures in Craft Passion – the Sock Shark.
The Sock Shark is sewed from a single piece of adult ankle sock (a pair can make 2 sharks), a scrap of white felt, a pair of button eyes and yellow embroidery floss, it is then stuffed by the polyester filling material to hold its shape. The length of this sock shark is roughly 9″ long from head to tail. For your ease of sewing, along with the details of the instruction, I have also included the pattern template on the tutorial page.
Human fears of shark because of it’s powerful jaws and the big wide mouth full of sharp teeth. Contrary to the brutal character of the man-eater has given, Sock Shark is soft and huggable, it has the most friendly big smiling mouth with the harmless well aligned zigzag teeth. Sock shark is child-friendly and it is perfect to make as a gift for any occasion.
Here they are, Sock Shark and Sock Unicorn Whale, the twin sea creatures live together harmoniously and peacefully in the sea world. Though they are totally different species, they acknowledge and respect each other for their differences. May the world behaves the same and creates a better place for the human to live together without any prejudice.
