How to Make a Small Toy Fish Out of a Sock

by Karen Larard


  • 1 Sock
  • 2 Buttons
  • Filling material
  • Strong tread
  • A bit of ribbon
  • Embroidery tread.
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Found a basked of mismatched baby socks when tiding up in the attic. I was going to throw them out, but then I thought that they might still have some purpose left in them.

    Step 2

    I filled the sock with some padding I had, and using a strong tread I sowed on buttons for eyes.

    Step 3

    I pulled the tread a bit in before sewing on the other eye, to make it look a bit like a fish face.

    Step 4

    Using the seam as a guide I attempted to make a mouth.

    Step 5

    Tied a piece of string at the end to make it look like a fish tail.

    Step 6

    I should have put a magnet in the head of the fish, and made a small fishing rod with another magnet and it would have been a start of a fishing pond.
