Sometimes he is cruel. Sometimes he is kind. He is my first sock toy without a pattern. Yes, he is Frederico of the Jungle.

I was surprised he turned out this well actually. I thought my first solo attempt would be a complete disaster but I just started cutting and here he is. His eyes are buttons of two different sizes which kinda work with the fact that the sock is cut unevenly at the top of his head – all of it ended up being masked by the glasses (made out of felt) anyway but I like the two different size eyes. I think imperfection is the way forward for my sock toys.

He’s South American but I haven’t decided which country. Brazil? Colombia? What do you think?

I do have to credit the beardlord, who I work with, for inspiration on the glasses.
