Show You the DIY Sock Elephant Making Process
Well, sock is totally normal, right? Because we wear it every day and there are various kinds of socks both in domestic and international markets, like Flame retardant sock, cotton sock, silk sock and so forth. Do you know that sock can be used to make the DIY dolls, like elephant, rabbit, mouse, dog and so forth? Do you want to make your DIY sock elephant? Follow me to get more details since we will give you a brief introduction next.
First of all, you should prepare things, like two socks, preferably with colored heels, needle, thread, scissors, ribbon, buttons, stuffing for the elephant, like poly-fil, sewing machine and so forth. You are advised to stitch the eyes of your elephant instead of using buttons if you are making this elephant for a child under 2 actually.
Second, turn one sock inside out before you start making it. Begin by cutting about 3 1/2 inches from the bottom of one sock. Measure about 3 inches up from the heel of the inside-out sock. Then sew a 1/8 inch seam on each side to the end of the sock horizontally. Then cut a small opening between the seams after you have sewn the seams to leave a hole to stuff the stuffing.
Third, put the sock right-side out and start to stuff the head of the elephant. To ensure its not lumpy, you should try best to stuff well. Decide where should be the neck and tie a ribbon there.
Fourth, stuff the remainder of the sock. Begin to stitch up this part of the elephant. Take your second sock and cut it in half. The lower part with the ribbing end will be the elephant's legs. The heel will be the elephant's mouth. Make the mouth look like a triangle.
Fifth, how to make its trunk? The bottom part of the sock to the toes will be its trunk. Cut it out so that it will shape into a trunk. You can make its ears with the top part of the flame retardant sock. Cut out two rounded flaps. Stuff with a little fluff and sew it to the elephant's face to make the mouth of elephant.
Sixth, take the bottom legs and stitch them up first. Stuff with fluff and sew them to the front of the elegant's body, one on each other. To make the trunk, you'll want it to be no longer than six inches. Take the strip and sew it lengthwise and sew it to the face of the elegant.
Last, sew the ears slightly, and attach them to the elephant head and now take a pair of buttons and sew one on each side of the elephant's head.
