袜子娃娃的故事

13:15:00 Kar Mun Stella 0 Comments

今天上网时,突然在Google看到我去年关于我和袜子娃娃的报道,才发现我好久没有做手工娃娃了。就是因为突发奇想做出袜子娃娃后,我和可爱的它们上了3次报纸。想起我的第一只娃娃是兔子,它真的是丑,可是我很有勇气送给朋友!然后经过多次创意出不懂造型娃娃后,我的手工已经是手能生巧了,做了超过100个造型的娃娃了。


有一段时间,我曾把它们放在time sqaure和sg. wang买,可是发现没几个人会欣赏我的娃娃。有的很喜欢它们,可是却买不下手,毕竟一个RM30可以买到比较大的hello kitty或者teddy bear。放了好几个月后,娃娃们都被摸黑了。过不久,搭卖的那两间店也关了,我就没有继续卖。反正是一种兴趣,得空有灵感就做一做。


如果你想订做娃娃给朋友,可以留言给我(记得附上email,方便我联络你),或者email至stella.karmun@gmail.com。我的娃娃部落各是:http://sock-wawa.blogspot.com/(对不起,几乎两年没有update了)。
这是我最后一个作品!雪人♥ ♥ ♥ ~

FOR some, a pair of socks is nothing more than another item in a wardrobe and discarded without a second thought.But for Stella Heong Kar Mun it is a medium to express her creativity. With a pair of socks, scissors, thread, cotton and a needle, she can fashion your favourite cartoon character into a cute doll. Prompted by a children’s show on television five years ago, making dolls became a hobby ever since.
“Doing nothing after my Form Five, I came across a Taiwanese guy making a socks doll on television and I was impressed.

One of a kind: Heong and her many handmade socks dolls.
“Immediately after the show I dashed off to buy some socks and for my first try I used regular cotton instead of fabric ones to make a rabbit doll”, she said.
Heong’s first doll did not turn out well but it does not stopped her from pursuing her hobby. Over the years, the 22-year-old has completed more than 100 masterpieces, which included re-creations of animals and cartoon characters. Among the dolls in her collection are Snoopy, Santa Claus, monkey, tiger, cow, rabbit and many more.
“Usually I will make them when I’m inspired,” said Heong, who is currently pursuing her degree in biotechnology at Sedaya Interna-tional University College.
“Receiving good comments provided inspiration to work out the next one with better designs.”
Socks dolls can be made from socks of any colour and any designs can be stitched to give it personality. To get the desired shape, cut the top and bottom of the socks, stuff in the required amount of cotton and seal it with stitches. And the rest of the doll’s features such as the eyes, nose, mouth and hair can be added using wool and buttons. It usually takes two hours to complete a socks doll, according to Heong.
When asked how much she would spend on buying socks, she said she would only spend RM3 to RM5 per pair. and she buys from specialty shops like Soxworld. The doll’s size often relies on the type of the material used as cheap socks can be stretched larger than expensive ones. But if it is stretched too much, it will result in imperfections on the final product. Therefore, a good technique is needed to avoid tearing. After endless requests from friends and relatives, Heong offers free classes during her spare time. When asked if she would start her own doll business, she said she prefers to keep it as a hobby.
