Introduction: Incredibly Easy Sock Plushie
Hey everyone it's momo and today I'm going to show y'all how to make a cute kawaii plushie. This is a bunny, bear, cat, looking thing. You won't even believe how incredibly easy this is! I hope you guys have fun!
Step 1: Supplies
1- ankle sock
2- needle and thread (black and white)
3- 2 black beads
6- cotton balls or wool stuffing
**sorry I don't have an image for this step**
Step 2: Ears
Put your sock inside out and lay it flat like I did. Then take your marker and draw the outline of the ears. Make sure they aren't too far away from the head. (The heel is the head)
Step 3: Sew
Sew along the line you just drew.
Step 4: Cut
Them take the scissors and cut close to the edge along the sewn line. (Make sure you don't cut too close though)
Step 5: Puff That Baby Up!
Now reverse the sock again and stuff the ears very tightly with cotton or wool. Then take a huge handful and jam as much cotton/ wool as you can into the sock.
Step 6: Sew Again
Sew the bottom closed tightly. You can cut the sock a little shorter if. You have a really long one. I don't have a picture of me doing the technique, but scroll down to where I make the arms. That's pretty much the same way.
Step 7: Stubby Arm Balls
Take the extra sock leftover and cut two messy circles out. Sew along the outer edge going in and out. Stuff with cotton/ wool and pull tightly closed.
Step 8: Sew Onto the Body
To sew the arm ball onto the plushie, put one stitch on the body, one stitch on the arm. Keep doing this all the way around until it's tightly on there. Do the same with the other arm ball
Step 9: Eyes
Sew the two black beads on. Make sure they are on (or very close to) the edge of the plushie. You need enough room to put in the mouth without having to squeeze it in there.
Step 10: Mouth
Take the marker again and draw the shape of the mouth you want. I really think the one I used is perfect to complete the whole look of it, but feel free to explore different options. Anyways take the string and go up and down the line. Not going side to side like you did when you were forming the ears, but the opposite side. (Sorry if that's confusing;)
Step 11: Finished!
And that's as Simone as it gets! If you haven't already, follow me, be a momoluver, become a member of the farm family and give a cow it's wings. Love y'all •_£
Step 12: (some Fun Ideas)
These are some pales you could put this little plushie.
Put him on your bed as a little pillow friend.
Put him on your desk or at work.
Put him up on a shelf for all to see your handiwork.
Give him a funny name. Mine's name is either Machiavelli, or Beauregard. I can't choose , they both are really crazy cool names! I think I'll go with Beauregard though :) thanks so much for reading this far if you even did. Love y'all •_£
