I'll be showing you how to make a mouse in the pictures, but you can modify the design to make several different types of animals, I'll give some suggestions when you're done.
Step 1: What you will need:
-small stretchy rubber bands – the kind they use for hair styling, you can get packs of them from beauty supply stores
-5 inch piece of ribbon (for the tail, if you're making a mouse like I do in the pictures)
Step 2: Making the feet
Next, use your fingers to fold the bottom of the sock inside itself. This will make the bottom edge of the sock flat (picture 2)
Pinch the corner of the sock and using a rubber band and tie it off to make a foot. Repeat with the other side to make the second foot (picture 3 & 4).
Step 3: Adding a tail (optional)
Turn the sock over, we’ll be adding the tail to the animal’s back.
Place the tail over the area that you want it to be attached to. Reach into the sock and pinch the knot. (picture 1 & 2)
Pull the sock-covered knot up through the inside of the body, then secure it with another rubber band. (picture 3)
There, the knot should now be secured and the tail attached to the body. (picture 4)
