WHIMSY LOFT

WHIMSY LOFT
This is a very simple Tutorial to make a Sock Owl. I’m using the leggings sock… the one that goes from your ankle up to your knees. See photos below from left to right. Measure 5″ from the rubber and cut. We only need this part, the rest can be kept for other toys ;-). Turn the sock around and sew a straight line on the rubber part. Ones done, go to the other side (where we cut just now), and fold the opening into 3 section like the photos. The section that I am holding in the photo is about 1 cm and it’s the tail of the owl. Then continue to sew the other section (the legs sections should be longer that the tail). Turn the socks around. Here is that body of the owl. Now, use some felt to cut the eyes and nose. Sew the felt on the owl as shown in photos below. Then (refer bottom panel of photos), cut 2 pieces of felt and 2 pieces of socks in another colour (you can also use fabric). Use simple stitches to sew the pink socks on the felt, then sew them on the sides of the owl.
