He is made from an old sock and is much loved.
Jamie chose him from this gorgeous book 'Stray Sock Sewing' by Dan Ta that I borrowed from the library. It has instructions to make many adorable sock creatures. Unfortunately Jamie chose one of the ones without instructions, so I had to wing it.
Spike actually turned out quite a lot like the picture (believe it or not!!) and Jamie (aged 6), who has never been interested in soft toys in his life, decided that Spike was the best thing ever. They very often cuddle up together to go to sleep with Truffle the dog.
When he's not sleeping, Spike likes to hang out in the herb garden.
I think he likes the coriander best :)
