Before I tell you about making sock doughnuts, let me tell you a story about my late father-in-law. He told his daughter that it was so hard to find "fun socks" any more. She went and found some socks with lots of crazy colourful stripes and spots. He looked disappointed. Apparently she had misheard him and he had asked for "fawn" socks.
this project for the socks. What attracted me was that there was no sewing involved. Lots of hot glue gun instead.
So we ended up cutting the fawn legs off socks, rolling them up and then when I glued the edges on I had to pull it as tight as possible to make the holes in the middle more visible. Then I cut out felt icing to glue on top. Lastly we used fabric paints to put sprinkles on top. It was great fun. We made a dozen over a few weeks.
Ironically after avoiding all the sewing, Sylvia has decided to start sewing a stuffed felt doughnut that I have finished off for her. We just need to sew on the sprinkles.
So here are 5 movies/tv shows with notable doughnuts:
- The Simpsons
- Adventure Time
- Wreck it Ralph
- Emoji Movie
All Day Doughnuts, Doughnut Time, Krispy Kreme, Donut Fest, Doughnut King and Dooughnut Time. My favourite doughnut place is not there though - the hot jam doughnut van at the Queen Victoria Market.
chocolate sourdough doughnuts, yeasted doughnuts, baking powder doughnuts and overnight sourdough doughnuts. Don't ask me which are my favourites! I love them all. Just don't ask me to fry them.
