 New year season gives grown-ups to return to childhood, where all dreams come true. And the usual sock can turn into a toy. Yes, we all heard about sock monkey, sock elephand and other sock-creatures. And today we are going to make a little snowman, Santa's helper

For this tutorial we will need 

  • toddler's socks in white and red colors
  • stuffing material
  • two tooth-picks
  • snowflake shaped bead
  • thin golden satin ribbon
  • cardboard christmas tree 
  • white feltcloth
  • white thread and needle
  • orange marker
  • black marker
  • scissors and glue

How to make a snowman from socks:

Take  white socks with a long shank part. I've used the ones from Mothercare or Gap, with a foldable ribbing. cut in in half just above the heel, just like shown on a picture. We will need only one part of it, the other can be used for some other toys

Take the toe part of a red sock and turn in inside-out. This is needed if you have any lables or slip-proof spots on it. We need plain red cap for the Santa's helper. ded moroz2 12
