No-Sew Socktopus Tutorial

I love this super easy cuddly Socktopus made from Teds tiny baby socks.

I have seen a few tutorials for these but all involve sewing eyes on so with the help of my favourite pen....yes I have a favourite pen...the Sharpie, I have made it totally no-sew!

Heres how to make your own Socktopus.

All you need is:
A Sock
Cuddly toy stuffing (or use an old cushion to save pennies)
Permanent Marker

  • Take your sock and fill the toe part with your stuffing. Enough to make a little ball shaped body.
  • Tie your ribbon at the base of the ball into a little bow. Make sure it is tight so that the stuffing doesn't fall out.
  • With your scissors cut the ankle part of the sock downwards to meet the ribbon. Repeat this until you have 8 little legs!
  • Finally add two little eyes with your permanent marker and your Socktopus is complete! 
I love making these and Ted really likes playing with their little legs.

This is a lovely way to use up odd socks or keep as a memory of your little ones tiny feet! We made a grown up stripy Socktopus too and can't wait to make lots more!

  1. That's really cute and looks fairly easy to make. Great use of an old sock. Thanks for linking up to #ThriftyThursday :-)
