This sewing project by Chasing Siberia on YouTube is so easy and simple but it looks very cute! I tried making my own version of this huggable sock snake, then gave it to my nephew who loves animal stuffed toys, and he loved it. This was a lovely project and an inexpensive gift idea that uses only a few socks and a piece of ribbon. You should check out and try this project as well, then keep it or give it as a gift.
- A bunch of socks
- A piece of ribbon, red color preferred, for the tongue
- Needle and thread
- Poly-fil fiberfill
- Fabric pins or clips
- Sparkly beads, for the eyes
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Find a sock that you want to be the head of the snake, then cut it across the heel, and cut out the toe part. Turn the sock inside out, then cut a piece of ribbon at any length you want, and insert it into the sock making sure to line it up to the seam of the toe. Sew the toe shut along with the ribbon, then take another sock, and cut it across the toe and the heel. Turn that other sock right side out, then link it to the sock head by sewing their seams together, and keep repeating the step until the snake is to the desired length.
For the last part of the snake or the tail, make sure to cut only across the heel and leave the toe intact before sewing it, and then leave an opening so that you can stuff the snake easily. Adhere the large beads to the head of the snake using hot glue to give it a pair of eyes, then trim the ends of the ribbon to make it look like a tongue, and apply hot glue to the end to avoid fraying.
