Socks, A Glue Gun, and A Rainy Day.

Harmony's favorite channel, and the only channel that she's allowed to watch in the morning, is Sprout.  She got this notion in her head, (Thank you, Nina!), about creating a sock puppet.  We got all of our supplies together and prepped so we could plan a day to make sock puppets..and what better day to do it then on a rainy, gloomy day like today!

If I'm a betting person, which I'm not.. I would guess that almost every household has unwanted and unmatched socks that are useless.  I am one of those households!  I have a drawer that I've been meaning to go through of unwanted or unmatched socks..and today, I finally repurposed some of these poor material souls.  :)

Beginning Stages of a Dog Sock Puppet.  :)
Dog and Cats Tongue and Ears- These are lucky socks!
Snuggly (Cat) and Winnie (Dog)
Winnie, the dog puppet, has a pink tongue that is glued where the thumb goes.  I don't think you can see it in any of my pictures.  :(  The cat's tongue is not completely glued because Harmony wanted to make sure that it could give kisses.  

I am utterly in love with my hot glue gun, which goes to say that I am extremely happy with the way these came out!  The happiest person is Ms. Harmony..

Look at that smile!
Once it dried- Winnie sprang to life, immediately!

I made my first attempt this morning at Mod Podge.. I decoupaged a tin can.. I will be doing a tutorial on that soon.

Happy Crafting!  :)
