No-Sew Sock Dog

No-sew Sock Dog Craft from www.daniellesplace.com

What you will need:

Socks - Children's stretchy socks in a variety of colors and designs, the stretchier the better. I used socks that were 75% cotton, 22% polyester and 3% spandex from K-mart. They were on sale, 3 pairs for 50 cents.

Poly-fil - for stuffing the socks - You can also use stuffing from old pillows or old stuffed animals.

Tiny rubber bands (You can find this in the hair accessories section of your department store or use Twist Bands made for rubberband looms.)

8 mm eyes, and other decorative items

Scissors

Hot melt glue gun - One that uses low temp. glue sticks

How to make:

Sock Dog Diagram

1. Flatten a sock so that the heel part of the sock is facing up.

2. Roll a wad of poly-fil into a ball about one inch in diameter and stick it inside the sock so that it is in the toe area on the bottom left-hand side as shown in the diagram to the right. Use your pointer finger to press the ball up against the side of the sock so that you can see your finger shape from the outside of the sock. Grab the ball of Poly-fil from the outside of the sock and wrap a rubber band around the ball to form a foot as shown in the diagram to the left. Do the same thing to the other side of the toe of the sock to form the other foot of the sock critter.

3. Roll up two more wads of poly-fil and place them just below the heel of the sock. Form them into arms just like you did the feet. See the diagram to the left.

4. Place a rubber band just above the arms to form the neck.

5. Put in more stuffing to form the head and secure the top with a rubber band. Once you have the body the way you would like it, you can replace the rubber bands with heavy thread.

This basic shape and technique was used for many of the sock critters shown below.

El Ratón the Mouse Tooth Fairy

El Raton the Mouse Tooth Fairy Sock Craft for Kids www.daniellesplace.com

What you will need:

A very stretchy baby sock. The one I used was 100% polyester.

Tiny rubber bands (You can find these in the hair accessories section of your department store.)

Poly-fil for stuffing the socks

8 mm eyes, pink bead or pompom for the nose, black thread for the whiskers, pink felt squares, other felt colors for the purse, and lace and other decorative items for the skirt.

Scissors

Hot melt glue gun (one that uses low temperature glue sticks).

 

How to make:

pink sock

1. If your sock has a cuff that is folded down and sewed to the sock, turn the sock inside out and carefully cut the stitching and unfold the cuff. This will make the sock longer.

2. Make ears on the sides of the ankle using small rubber bands and poly-fil. (See the general directions above on how to make no-sew sock dolls.

3. Use a very small amount of poly-fil to stuff the toe of the sock
(head of the mouse). The head should be floppy, not stiff. Use a small rubber band to tie off the head.

4. Fill the cuff of the sock with poly-fil so that it is stiff. This is the body of the mouse. (You can add some rice to the top of the cuff to make the mouse bottom heavy. This will help is stand up better.) Glue the sock closed.

5. To make the eye sockets insert a threaded and knotted needle into the place you would like one eye pushing it through the head to the other side where you would like the other eye. Cut off the needle and pull the thread to form the eye sockets. Tie the end of the thread to keep the shape. Glue eyes to the eye sockets.

6. Sew on a bead for the nose or glue on a pink pompom.

7. Make whiskers just like you did the eye socket except don't pull the thread tight and leave the tied ends long.

This craft goes along with the book "Throw Your Tooth on the Roof
Tooth Traditions from Around the World"

Go to the Education Crafts Relating to Books Page for more information about this book.

Throw Your Tooth on the Roof: Tooth Traditions from Around the World

8. Use the Patterns to cut the arms, feet, and tail from pink felt and glue them onto the body.

9. Glue on lace for the skirt or make sock doll clothes (see below) for the mouse.

10. Cut the back and front of the purse from two different colors of felt. Sew the pieces together and then fold down the flap. Glue two tiny pieces of Velcro to the flap to keep it down. Glue a decorative button on the outside of the purse. Glue on a piece of matching ribbon for the strap.

Socks - Two child-sized socks that compliment each other

Poly-fil - for stuffing the socks,

Tiny rubber bands (You can find this in the hair accessories section of your department store.)

Scissors

Hot melt glue gun - One that uses low temp. glue sticks.

 

How to make:

Sock Doll Diagram 1

1. Flatten a sock so that the heel part of the sock is facing up.

2. Roll a wad of poly-fil into a ball about one inch in diameter and stick it inside the sock so that it is in the toe area on the bottom left-hand side as shown in the picture to the right. Put your hand inside the sock and use your pointer finger to press the ball up against the side of the sock so that you can see your finger shape from the outside of the sock. Grab the ball of Poly-fil from the outside of the sock and wrap a rubber band around the ball to form a foot. Do the same thing to the other side of the toe of the sock to form the other foot of the sock critter.

3. Make two ball shapes for the arms just above the heel of the sock as shown in the picture. Use a rubber band to close off the top where the neck will be. Cut the top off the sock just above the rubber band.

Sock Doll Diagram 2

4. The head and cover for the body is made with another sock. If you want to make ears, make two ball shapes near the heel of the second sock and then fill the sock with poly-fil to just below the heel of the sock.

5. Cut two very small slits (1/4") just below the heel of the sock where the arms will emerge. The slits should be very small because the sock material stretches a lot. If you make them two big, the material underneath will show through.

sock Dog Diagram 3

6. Now place the head sock over the neck of the body sock and force the two arms through the tiny holes you cut.

7. Pull the cuff of the top sock all the way down to the legs and glue the edge of the sock together between the legs as shown in the picture to the right.

Then squeeze up on the chin area to make the mouth. Glue the sides of the mouth closed but leave the middle of the mouth open where the tongue goes. Cut a tongue from pink fun foam and glue it to the inside of the mouth. To make the eyes look inset, insert a needle with thread down into the head where you want the first eye bringing it back up where you want the second eye. Poke the needle back down into the head and back up again to where you started. Pull the thread tight to form the indents. Cut off the needle and tie the ends of the thread together.

Glove and Sock Turtle

Glove Turtle Craft for kids

These are great to make with those gloves that you just can't find the mates. Or buy gloves and socks really cheap at sales after Christmas.

What you will need: Stretchy knit gloves and the toe of one sock, poly-fil, low temp. glue gun, animal eyes, needle and thread, decorative items, and scissors.

How to make:

1. Fill the fingers of the glove, not including the thumb, with poly-fil.

2. Turn down the cuff of the sock and turn the thumb of the glove inside out bringing it up over the folded down cuff.

3. Fill the inside-out thumb and the palm part of the glove with poly-fil.

4. Glue the glove closed around the cuff. Spread out the fingers twisting the finger next to the thumb to the back of the turtle. Glue the fingers in place underneath the turtle.

5. Cut the foot off of a sock and glue it to the back of the turtle to make its shell. Decorate the shell with beads or sequins.

6. Glue on the eyes. To make the mouth insert a threaded needle into the mouth area bring it up through the finger of the glove to the top of the head and then back down to where mouth area. Pull the thread tight and tie the ends together to make the indent.

7. To make the hat cut the tip off a finger of another glove. Roll up the cut edge and glue it in place. Glue a flower or other decorative item to the hat and glue the hat to the head of the turtle.

Sock Clothes for Sock Dolls and Sock Critters

Glove Dog Craft

Sock Clothes are very easy to make. All you need are some old socks and some scissors. Follow the diagrams below to cut the clothes.

When cutting holes in the socks for the arms and legs, cut them much smaller than you think you need because the socks are very stretchy and the holes will stretch to a much bigger size than you cut.

You can also glue on lace, buttons, sequins, and pompoms to decorate the clothes.
