Here’s another sock project. I got the idea from the very cool book, Sock and Glove. I love sock projects because there is so little sewing involved, which makes them super fast! This fish took only 10 minutes to make. Also, sock crafts are a great way to repurpose my stripy socks so I don’t have to just throw them away. And if you made one with felt eyes, instead of buttons, it could be a great baby toy too!
To try making one yourself, just cut your sock across the heal, then fill it with stuffing. Then cut the tail piece off the remaining scrap, and insert it into the open end of the body. Then sew across to secure it. Finally, add your button eyes. I used embroidery thread, so they’re nice an sturdy. That’s it!
