Sewing instructions With instructions: How to make a sheep sock animal

Is not it cute? The Sheep Sock Animal extends your petting zoo at home with a cute little creature. We have the perfect guide to sew on!


You need this:

  • 2 white tennis socks
  • Sewing machine and matching sewing thread
  • fiberfill
  • Embroidery thread in purple
  • possibly chalk pen
  • fabric scissors
  • sewing needle
  • embroidery needle

And this is how it's done:

First, the individual body parts must be cut. For this, use the canvas as a template and possibly mark the pattern with a chalk pen. When cutting, the socks must lie flat.

Cut apart as shown. (The parts shown are used as follows: left sock above body with hind legs, toe = one ear, right sock cuff becomes tail, shaft with heel becomes head, foot becomes front legs, toe becomes ear). Turn items to left.

Sew the body together as follows: Sew up the head on one side. Sew the front legs together, leave a narrow side open for filling. Sew up the ears, make a small opening to turn. Sew up the tail and leave an opening on a narrow side.

Pull all body parts to the right and fill with cotton wool. Sew the body and head by hand as shown, then sew the head to the body. Close arms, ears and tail first and then sew to the body. Stitch eyes and nose on head with embroidery thread in basting stitch. Sew on the paw with a basting stitch, then tighten and knot.
