Picture of Sock Puppets: Make yourself some Friends!
Are you bored? Lonely? ... Or just a little bit nuts? Maybe your all of that and more? Well this Instructable is for YOU!

In a few easy steps, I will show you how to transform your otherwise boring socks into animated friendly individuals who want to keep you company! Take them to the movies, take them to the shops, everyone will point and admire your handy... or should that be foot work?

hehe So, okay, for those who don't need a friend, and just want to make a KICK ASS sock puppet I suppose I will let you read this too. I was asked to make some sock puppets for the show, and so I decided to jazz them up abit since I had the stuff laying around... so... ENJOY!

It's better if you glue a circle of cardboard to the inside of the toe. Then the mouth is better defined.

 I had way too much fun answering my teacher's questions with a sock puppet named Ringo a few weeks back. I don't think they'll ever seer me the same way again :D

HAHAHA My parrot is called Ringo...

I want to answer a police officer with a sock puppet after being pulled over... NOW THAT would be amusing!

Even more fun with cats around, but make sure the sock is thick enough to take some insane claws.  I have seen cats flip out and try to beat a sock puppet to death (like I do with big bugs).
