Our new stripey little boys......

Meet Rodney & Evan - two of our latest stripey blue little sock bears. They wanted to stop by and introduce themselves and let you know they've both been added to our online stores and are looking for nice little homes to go to!

"Rodney loves pancakes with maple syrup, playing black jack online and doing the daily crossword. Rodney dislikes enclosed spaces, getting caught in the rain and his favourite colour is orange."

"Evan likes Ben and Jerry ice cream, bananas, kayaking and playing the drums. Evan dislikes seafood, is afraid of cats and his favourite colour is green."

socks, socks, socks

On a recent trip to LA we were stunned to come across the most incredible shop selling hundreds of funky socks. It was like nothing we had ever seen before so we whipped out our camera for a photo!
With sooooo many different types of socks on offer, we couldn't help but think of all the wonderful little sock buddies that could be made. There were stripey socks, spotty socks, fluffy socks, socks with toes.......ah so many to choose from.
After a long time looking around we finally managed to pick out a few pairs. We're excited to get stitching and see what little creations can be made. Puck particularly liked these girly stripey socks and has put in a request for a new girlfriend!

New Stock at Otterton Mill

Popped up to Otterton Mill today and were very pleasantly surprised to see our little basket of Sock Buddies was almost empty. That means lots of our little guys have found themselves nice new homes over the holidays! Our sock monsters and aliens have proved particularly popular....they are hard to resist, they're soooooo quirky!

We have restocked our shelf with some new buddies, so if you're in the area (Budleigh Salterton) why not go take a peek. It's well worth a trip up there, Otterton Mill has lots to offer and the gallery is chocked full of fantastic crafty bits! In the next few weeks we will be adding some new Vampire Buddies for Halloween. It's been great fun creating them.....hopefully you guys will like them as much as we do. We'll post some new piccies of them soon!
