These precious sock animals are very easy to make. Instructions are given to make six animals – a giraffe, zebra, monkey, bear, puppy and pig. All animals are assembled using a whip stitch by hand.
Every animal will be unique depending upon the socks you use. Purchase inexpensive socks that don’t have writing on them. You will also need felt, buttons, polyester stuffing and thread. You can use any size socks – men’s, women’s or children’s. Larger socks will make larger animals. Smaller socks will make smaller animals. I used women’s and men’s socks for the giraffe, monkey and zebra. Girl’s ankle socks were used for the pig, puppy and bear.
The muzzle on the monkey is embroidered with stem stitch, using embroidery floss. You can tie ribbons or wrap fleece scarves around the animal’s necks to make them even more fun. If you want to make them for babies, you should embroider eyes and nostrils in place of the buttons, and also eliminate giraffe and zebra mane. Sew Velcro to the ends of the long armed animals and they can give hugs to children or wrap them around jars filled with treats and give them as gifts.
