I based this sock dog off of these instructions, and created a photo tutorial to accompany them.  I modified the directions to make this a Corgi as a Christmas gift.

Supplies
  • 1 pair of regular length socks (you can used colored socks, or use a sock which you can then color with fabric markers)
  • Scissors
  • Needle and thread
  • Buttons, beads, doll eyes or embroidery string (to make face)
  • Pipe cleaners (optional)

Step 1: Cut, Sew & Stuff Sock 1

  • Start by turning your sock inside out
  • Take sock 1 and flatten it out, so that the heel is on the top
  • Cut off the top of the sock and then cut a straight line down the middle, to the start of the heel.  This will become the dog's back legs.  I cut down the legs of mine since I was making a corgi.
  • If the dog's body is too long you can cut the toe off of the sock as I did in the photo.
  • Round the feet with your scissors and then sew up the sides of the legs, leaving a gap so that you can can flip the sock right side out.  
  • I also inserted a piece of pipe cleaner into each leg before sewing it up to help create a foot.
  • Flip the sock and then stuff.

I made one of these years ago in high school. I found the tutorial in a magazine. I wanted to make another but could never find the instructions. Thanks for posting
Haha! That is adorable!
