Meet the maker Shaz Shanehchi

Hello and welcome to OddSox - I'm Shaz...

A few years ago my sister Lou gave me a fabulous book called 'Sock Monkeys'. It's crammed full of brilliant monkey mugshots. I couldn't wait to have a go and since then I've been making all kinds of sock based creatures. I've also branched out into jumper creatures (at last, a way of re-using those woollen washing machine mistakes!), I've discovered the Japanese crochet style Amigurumi and have also dabbled with needlefelting, plus I also enjoy freemotion sewing.

The bit I like best is when the bodies are made and stuffed and are ready to have their 'faces put on'. Happy, sad, grumpy, or mad - it can all change with the size or position of a button or stitch!

I have lots more pics to look at on flickr ( so if you see something there that takes your fancy just let me know!

I'm happy to take on commissions or adapt an item if it's not quite right for you. For example you might prefer felt eyes on a creature rather than buttons. Just email me with any requests.

I hope my stuff makes you smile!

Shaz x
