You will need:

  • 2 fluffy socks of different colours
  • Felt and beads
  • Thread and needles
  • Toy stuffing
  • Plastic bottle

 

Method:

  1. Take one colour sock, turn inside out and put it over the water bottle.
  2. Using a glue gun stick toy stuffing all over the sock, covering about 6” down the sock on all sides.
  3. Pull the other colour sock over the top of this and pull the bottle out from inside.
  4. Cut off the excess off the sock and sew the ends of the socks together. This will mean the stuffing is encased between them and you can turn the sock inside out to see the different colours.
  5. Decorate the socks to look like animals using felt, beads and a needle and thread.
  6. Now you have a reversible soft toy plushie of infinite cuteness.
