Make a Sock Dog!
Super cute, a little time consuming but pretty easy. All you need is a pair of socks you don't mind cutting up and some patience. I got this from a craft magazine years ago.

    Step 1

    First, get your pair of socks and put one aside for now. We're going to be working on one sock at a time.

    Step 2

    This first sock will be the body of the dog. Turn the sock inside out and cut the end off. However much space you cut from the heel will determine how long the legs are. As you see on this sock dog in the picture his legs are going to be pretty long but cutting it closer to the heel of the sock will make little stubby legs that are just as cute.

    Now turn over the sock so the heel is laying up and flatten it out a bit. Cut the sock in half all the up to the heel. These will be the back legs of the dog.

    Now sew up the two legs and turn him rightside out again, leaving a small hole between the legs to stuff. Make sure you pack the stuffing in pretty good so he's solid then sew the hole between the legs.

    The last step on the first sock is to make a little crease at the head end and sew it into place. This is so when you make the head you will have something to mount it on.

    Now get the other sock and turn it inside out then cut it just like this. The tip of the sock will become the ears, the heel of the other sock will become the head. Again, however close you cut the material will determine the length of his snout and neck. The rest of the sock will become the legs and tail.
