Step 4: Finish It Up

  1. After stuffing all eight legs, fill the foot portion of the sock (head) with stuffing
  2. Tuck the end of the sock that is only legs (the one that you removed the foot from before) inside the opening of the sock that has the foot still attached
  3. Carefully sew this portion together to close the whole thing up
  4. Stitch on some eyes (and a mouth, if you want to)
  5. Behold the eight-legged greatness of your awesome sock-ta-pus!

As we covered the runway debut of the <a href="http://www.chanels.cc/" rel="nofollow"><b>Chanel Handbags</b></a> Summer 2010, reviews were mixed by various of people. My favorite is the watercolored Classic Chanel Flap Bag, which looks utterly elegant with a variety of summer wardrobe options. As for the <a href="http://www.chanels.cc/chanel-accessories-c-115.html" rel="nofollow"><b>Chanel Purses</b></a> that dot the collection, they&rsquo;re very taste-specific, but I could see some of the more subdued version working quite well with summery white linen or various bright colors for contrast.

As summer comes, I think that you may do not want to wear <a href="http://www.ugglinks.com/" rel="nofollow"><b>UGG Boots</b></a>. It is said that if you want to put your ugg boots up, you had better place a support plate into the <b><a href="http://www.ugglinks.com/ugg-bailey-button-c-66.html" rel="nofollow">UGG Classic Boots</a></b>, if not, you may also use newspaper. The general newspaper is the best choice. When you use it, you can feel that it can help you avoid moisture and odor. You don&rsquo;t need to fill up, you just need to hold up slightly and to leave gaps. From <a href="http://www.ugglinks.com/" rel="nofollow"><b>UGG Boots Outlet</b></a>.
&nbsp;&nbsp;I like the one that has the nubbies. :D<br /> <br /> &nbsp;I'm gonna make one of these soon. I love octopus'. I even have a stuffed blue ringed octopus I got in Tennessee that I love love love! :)<br />
Thanks so much! Please post photos when it's done!<br />
this is soooooooooooooooooooooo cool!! im making one right now!!<br />
Thanks, I hope it turns out great!<br />
This is a great project for orphan socks... We all have them, and you could call it your orphan socktopus... Until you make it more buddies! Might be a great cat toy if stuffed with some catnip too... :)
Thanks so much for your comment! It'd be a great way to put those lonely socks to good use, and the catnip is also an awesome idea!
This is really hard to understand. Just thought i'd mention.
I'm not sure if others agree, but do you have any suggestions that might help? I'd be happy to add more explanation if you clarify what is hard to understand. I've added a few illustrations of some of the steps - they're not great, but I hope they might help some.
Ah. There we go. Thank you.
Glad they helped.
I'm a little confused. On Step 2, we cut the foot part off of the socks, but on Step 4, it says one of them still has the foot? By the way, can you catch a socktapus with a fishnet stocking?
Awesome catch! I'm sorry about that - it was actually a typo (which in reading it again made no sense at all). Step 2 should have said (and now does) to cut the foot (really about 4 inches of the toes) off of only one sock. This is then what gets tucked into the whole foot of the other sock in Step 4. Hmm, that's a good question - it just might work I think.
It's so cute, cool idea to make it from a socks!
Thanks so much! The knee socks actually ended up being a little bit long (I think at least), so normal socks would probably work really well.
What a fun idea - thanks. Now to make Sock Cthulhu! Maybe keep the foot on both socks and then splice the two together to make a more squamously oversized Cthulhu head...
Thanks! I bet you could just not slice quite as far into the leg portion of the sock when you cut the strips to make the legs - that way you'd have a larger portion for the head. Please do post pictures if you give it a shot!
very well made when i first read it, i thought it said "shock-ta-pus"!
Thanks so much! The stitches got a little stretched, but I think overall it turned out really well.
