Finished Sock Skeleton

A little while ago I made a post about a tutorial I saw off Martha Stewart's website for a sock skeleton. Well this is my finished skeleton and I have some tips.


I bought my socks from the dollar tree becuase my husband only had grey tipped socks. Big mistake. The cheap material, although thrifty, is a bad material to try to sew with. It's thin, the colors show through, it stretches unevenly and tears easily.

On the flip side though, I did save money on something I never tried before so who knew how it would turn out.

Also another tip, try and make your limbs as even as possible. Another down side to the cheap material  one of the arm parts needed more stuffing to look full so it ended up bigger.

My kids love this craft. He already got a name, Buttons, and my son chases my daughter with it. Not the best poroject for me ever, I mean I like it but it didn't turn out super good.

Have a spooooktactular time making your own :)
