Sock It to Me! Make Plush Animals!
Everybody knows the classic sock monkey, but why not make a whole menagerie? These easy-to-care-for critters don’t have to be walked every day, and they’re house-trained from the get-go! And there’s the CF. Never underestimate the power of the Cute Factor.
Your Sock Monkey doesn’t have to look like everyone else’s! (If you’re using spare socks, you can pretty much guarantee a unique softie.) Craft Passion shows you how to take a lonely old sock and turn it into a super-cute monkey!

For a low-maintenance puppy, you can’t beat Single Sock Dog. As the name implies, Cut Out and Keep makes this cutie from just one sock, creatively cut apart and reconstructed. The photos accompanying the instructions will help you put this little guy together.
This Sock Teddy Bear wears his heart on his chest with a cute little button. RAWR Creatures does some of the sewing by machine, but you can do all the stitching by hand and your bear will be just as adorable!
