    Fun with mateless socks!

    The Lonely Sock Club offers lots of delightful ideas for repurposing socks without mates. It comes complete with little, colorful pom poms, yarn in several colors, felt squares and googly eyes. You just supply the "lonely" socks, the needle and thread and any other random trinkets you'd like to add.

    The Lonely Sock Club suggest getting creative and letting your sock patterns speak to you, by using those colors and patterns for "functional to fantastical" projects. They start with simple instructions for the basic running stitch for children to learn and go on to give helps like how to make simple body parts out of the socks. The author recommends several types of "eco-friendly" alternatives to poly-fil for the stuffing.

    There are socks made into fish, monsters, pets, cute critters and more and I loved the teeny little creatures made from tiny, baby socks. Christmas decorations, pet beds, quilts and pillows are some of the other suggestions for mateless socks. Socks also make perfect little sacks for holding all kinds of things, from sachets to soap. They also have lots of really creative ideas for apparel and accessories, like gloves, hats and scarves.

    The Lonely Sock Club is an excellent book for introducing children to soft toy construction, as well as simple sewing techniques using materials that are already around the house.
