How to Make DIY Sock Baby?
Sock baby is very popular among consumers both at home and abroad actually. They can differ greatly in sizes, styles, appearances and so forth. You can find it easily in stores. Actually, you can make the DIY sock baby by your self if you look the following details carefully. There is no doubt that you should prepare socks, like Flame retardant sock. Follow me to get more details.
First of all, prepare things you will need, like 3 infant tube socks, pantyhose, yarn, needle and thread, small and fuzzy ball, nontoxic fabric markers and so forth. You are not advised to substitue buttons for the eyes if you are giving this doll to a small child since he or she will bite off and choke sometimes. Attention, please! You'd better put the sock baby in a pillowcase and launder it on the delicate cycle when you washing it. Let it dry naturally.
Second, use pantyhose to stuff one of the infant tube socks. Tie the sock shut about 1/2 inch from the bottom with a yarn.
Third, to make a cap for the doll by folding over the remaining material from the sock opening. Use the needle and thread to tack down the ends of the cap and sew a small, fuzzy ball on top. Turn the second sock inside out and cut off the toe right below the heel. You should cut it vertically from the bottom of the sock toward the opening, stopping about 1/2 inch from the top.
Fourth, turn the sock right-side-out and stuff the 2 tubes with pantyhose. Slide the base of the first sock into the open top of the second sock. Use needle and thread to fasten the second sock to the first sock to make the doll legs.
Fifth, cut off the third sock right below the heel. Flip it over and cut off the base of the toe. Turn the sock inside out and cutin half vertically. Sew up the long side of each strip, stuff with pantyhose and stitch up the cup and bottom. Then you get the doll arms actually.
Then, how to give your doll a face and head? Cut a small piece of yarn and tie off the top third of the first sock to make the head. Draw a face on the head by using markers you have prepared. Use needle and thread to attach the arms to the body.
