Make Your Own Sock Buddies

Create fun sock buddies with leftover socks!

Raise your hand if you have at least 5 socks in your home without a pair! Here’s a great way to re-purpose those lonely socks.

What you will need:

  • Socks
  • Poly-fil
  • Craft Glue
  • Googily Eyes
  • Felt
  • Poms
  • Scissors
  • Yarn or rubber bands
  • Imagination


1. Take one of your socks and fill it with poly-fil. When you have the desired amount in the sock, tie a knot at the bottom and cut off the excess material.


2. Use your creativity and imagination to cut & affix your pieces of felt, poms and googily eyes to your buddy. You can use small pieces of yarn or rubber bands to section off parts of the sock to make ears, noses, etc.


3. Have fun! Since the weather is starting to get colder and the kids will be inside more, these buddies make great indoor play toys. Kids can play catch with them or have throwing contests!
