What do you do with your odd socks? You know, those ones that mysteriously lost their mate in the dryer somehow? I usually hold onto them optimistically for a few weeks hoping the other one will turn up, but then they usually get shoved to the back of my drawer all alone. Here’s a better idea: why not turn those odd socks into cute DIY stuffed animals instead?
I made this cute trio of a rabbit, cat, and dog – aren’t they adorable? This project does not require any sewing, so with a bit of felt and hot glue you’ll be well on your way to a group of playful sock pets. Lucky enough to not have any odd socks hanging around? Buy a few pairs of colorful socks and use those instead. Let’s get crafting!
What You Need
- Fine tip black permanent marker
- Mini pom poms
- Hot glue gun
- Stuffing (not pictured)
Fill your sock with stuffing, leaving the ankle area empty.
Fold over the empty ankle and hot glue it to the back of the sock.
Hot glue mini pom poms onto the sock to make the eyes and nose. Use a fine tip black marker to draw on the mouth, whiskers, and other details.
Cut ears out of felt and hot glue onto the head.
In the same way, cut felt arms, legs, and a tummy for the cat. Hot glue in place.
Finally, cut a tail out of felt and glue to the back of the sock. Repeat for a whole crew of little sock buddies!
