Step 1: Mark the Place for the Eyes

Put the sock on your hand to get a  feel for where the mouth will be. The mouth will be created by the crease between your fingers and thumb.
Once you have a feel for how you want to hold the puppet and mark where you want the eyes to go with the marker.

Step 2: Attach the Eyes

Glue or sew the eyes onto  the puppet.

Step 3: Customize It!

This will take your puppet from being a sock with eyes glues on to a completely personalized sock puppet.

Attach or draw in anything else you find necessary. I am not going to tell you how to do this because it is entirely up to you!
Just make sure to be creative and adventurous when creating your puppet.
