"Now I will believe that there are unicorns..."

That line is from The Tempest by William Shakespeare. There may not be unicorns in Arabia but there are unicorns at Sole Mate Toys!  

A very dear friend needed a special toy for a gift but it had to be a unicorn... and purple! I started with my standard horse design but realized it needed some tweaking to be fabulous. So I added a new leg style, a magical horn with glittery thread and long wonderful yarn hair. The sock used is a glittery purple and black design and it came out wonderfully.

The photo really doesn't do it justice. I can't wait to hear how much his new owner loves him. Apparently the recipient has stated she doesn't like sock toys so my friend bought this to prove to her wrong. I hope it works!

Hi Michelle!

I was Google-ing for sock animals by images, and was
immediately captivated by your unicorn. A simple form,
but beautifully rendered.

I have been enjoying browsing your other creations, and
they are all so very lovely!
All under such a clever name.

I have bookmarked your site, as it is so inspirational!

Have a super day!
