Toy Designer from Dublin

Red Rufus's profile image

A love affair with Rufus, the family's Irish Setter puppy, began in 2009. In 2010 Christina made three SockDogs inspired by the family dog for her children and a spark was ignited to create these beautiful creations for others to enjoy.

Christina has always sewn and embroidered articles and her skills have been honed over the years of making. Each year a new quirky creature is introduced and Christina loves the challenge of turning a pair of socks into something wonderful to catch a child's imagination.

Gone to the dogs

Designed and handmade in Ireland, a pair of socks is transformed into an adorable SockFriend, cut, sewn, then stuffed with toy stuffing. The SockAnimal comes to life as it is assembled and stitched entirely by hand.
