picspam: doris and the couch gang.
Not technically a Christmas toy, Doris is a sock doll I finished...um...New Years-ish? She's 4 or 5 socks, plastic safety eyes, a flaming orange bridal applique up one leg, some pompoms, and a strip of fake fur. Oh, and buttons. Several of her parts are from the amazing Stupid Sock Creatures book -- find it on Amazon, or visit stupidcreatures.com and take a gander at the gallery.

Doris, Pointy Dog (by Uglydoll, added collar and badge) and Sharkey. They live on the sofa.

Doris from the back. She is cagey on the subject of her cloak. Are those dangly things, or is that where new limbs emerge?

When Doris was stuffed, you could see through her sock skin into the polyfill. So I took various semi-matching yarns (thanks, Hobby Lobby clearance aisle!) and embroidery threads, and wove them in and out to hid her innards, give her more substance, and add more color variation.

Sharkey. I made him a few years ago, possibly at the office during a lull. Surprisingly cuddly.

That is weirdly adorable. (And vice-versa.)

Doris is adorable and bright and orange, but I want to take Sharkey to bed. In a completely non-provocative way.

He has the reassuring flatness of a well-broken-in toy.

Oh, which translates into 'I adore your cute little crafted critters'. In case you couldn't tell amidst all the flailing and asploding.
