Hi! I came across a cute tutorial last week on how to make a sock teddy bear. He looked so fun and easy, I thought I'd give one a shot. I stitched one up while Tim and I were watching a movie Friday evening so I snapped a few pics along the way and thought I'd share. I tried to track down the original creator and designer of these little bears and I believe the source comes from a site called Taobao. You'll notice I had the help of a little kitty named Boo, who you'll see makes a couple of guest appearances in the step-by-step photos. :) Boo is a frequent sidekick while I'm sewing my RAWR creatures and does have his own drawer in my desk where he likes to curl up while I sew. On to the tutorial! • 2 socks (1 is the majority of the bear, the other you'll only need a small amount for the bear's nose) • scissors • thread • marker (or something to draw your shapes for cutting) • stuffing • needle, stick pins • kitty foot on the left hand side of the photo is optional. On to the fun part! 1. 2. 3. Related:  Sock animals

Sock Elephant Sewing Pattern Instructions: Cut 3-1/2 inches off rib of sock. Starting 3 inches from the heel, sew a 1/8 inch seam on each side of the center line and across the end of the ribbing. Cut the sock between the seams and about 1-1/2 inches farther to make an opening for the stuffing. Head and Body: To shape the head, stuff foot of sock nice and plump and tie off loosely at the neck with ribbon. Legs: Cut the second sock as shown, about 5 inches long. Mouth: Cut off complete heel from the second sock. Trunk: Open flat strip of sock so it is about 1 inch wide at one end and 6 inches at the other. Ears: For each ear, cut two pieces in the shape of the ears. Eyes: Sew on moving eyes, buttons (my personal favorite), felt, or embroider with black thread. Tail: Make a short roll of the material and sew into place. Trim: Trim is optional.

Guest Tutor: Sewing Sock Kitty {Tutorial} I wanted to try sewing sock plushies since months ago but keep on postponing due to my long craft lists and ideas, until I saw Brenda of KrafteeBee posted her long ear sock cat, Gumbo, I can’t resist for not asking her to guest post in Craft Passion. I want to share with you how to sew sock plushies while I learn from her!!! Brenda, who is also known as Sweetee Bee in KrafteeBee blog is a working mum with 2 lovely 20 month-old twins, Aiden and Caileigh, twins! TWINS? Besides the sock plushies she made, I like this tutorial too. Let’s see how to sew this cute little sock kitty, Brenda called her Lenny, after this jump. Guest Tutor: Brenda of KrafteeBee When I shared pics of Gumbo and Gummy, I received a pleasant surprise one day…. an offer to be a Guest Post in Craft Passion site!!!

Then, when I made CoCo the sock monkey, Caileigh took it into her hands and tried to sit Coco down….very gently.

Sock Dog Tutorial Meet Bertie, their cousin! She has been very generous to agree to let me show you how she was made. You'll need: One men's sock (the bigger the better!) So, here's what you're starting with. Ears: Cut the toe of the sock off about 1.5 - 2 inches in a slight arch, the more of the toe you cut off, the floppier her ears will be. Now comes the tricky part. Separate the two halves of the toe of the sock and fold them in half with the right sides of the sock facing each other. With your sewing machine, sew along the straight edge, leaving as small a seam allowance as possible. Body: Now let's move on to Bertie's body. Before you start stuffing we need to cut out her tail and her four legs. Stuff Bertie's body. Each time you stuff a limb or her leg I would recommend pinning it like I did below before you stitch it on. Tail: Grab the portion of the sock that you cut for the tail. Turn the tail inside out and it will look like this, ready for stuffing.

A Sock Bunny (A Tutorial Move over sock monkey! These little sock bunnies are so easy and cute! All you need is some nice knee high socks and some simple sewing supplies. I sewed mine on a machine but they can be easily hand stitched too! So cute as a gift or to stuff an Easter basket! Boo will be so excited to see these in her basket: If you are making them for a child under the age of 3, just stitch eyes on instead of using buttons so that there won’t be a choking hazard. I bought these cute knee high socks at Target for $2.50 a piece. Step 1: Cut the foot of one of the socks right down the middle, but don’t cut all the way to the heel. Step 2: Cut the other side of the sock down the middle as shown. Step 3: Cut the foot off the second sock: Step 4: Cut the foot of the second sock down the middle. Step 5: Back to the first sock, hand stitch or use a machine to sew the ears shut: Step 6: Sew the bottom of the feet and insides of the bunny legs as shown…..leaving a 2 inch hole to insert stuffing into:

Single Sock Dog Tutorial I love these little guys and think I should spread the love. They are quite easy and are soooo soft and cuddly when they are done its ridiculously difficult to give them away. You will need: one stray sock (OK! Then cut the sock like so: The portion to the left is the legs, the middle is the body and head and the right is the tail and ears. The easiest method for me is to run some medium stitches all the way around then pull to gather and sew some stitches across the opening to secure shut. Notice how the heel of the original sock is going to be the forehead of our puppy. Gather the bum end closed using the same method as above. When you're ready, take the remaining bits from above and cut to look like this: (Note, the remains are in the same order the first cuts we made above if you are uncertain). Each of the back legs and front legs is folded double. Cut 2 pieces of corresponding fleece for ears. The photo below shows the effect you're going for with the back legs. And that's it!

Sock doll tutorial by ~httpecho on deviantART How to Make a Zine Zine-making isn’t about rules or knowledge; it’s about freedom and POWER. Zines are self-published, small-circulation, often nonprofit books, papers, or websites. They usually deal with topics too controversial or niche for mainstream media, presented in an unpolished layout and unusual design. Everyone, from a major NGO to a teenager like you, can be an author (and also an editor, art director, and publisher) of a zine, and that’s part of what makes them so awesome. Since the invention of the photocopy machine, zine-making has been one most popular forms of independent publishing, especially in underground communities. But it’s hard to generalize about zines, the same way it’s hard to generalize about culture. There’s a whole wiki devoted to zines here. Nowadays (boy I sound old all of a sudden) you can make a digital zine/mag and reach people on the other end of the planet in a blink, but what’s nicer than a little handmade book you can hold in your non-virtual hands? You’ll need: 1.

TUTORIAL :: SOCKS OWL | 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. 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. Ones you have sewn the wings, the owl should look like the photo below.
