Title: Sock Creatures!
Post by: SandPunk on February 07, 2017, 08:12:48 am
We got invited to a birthday party for a friend's daughter.
So, my wife and I made her some sock puppets!

Very cute! I assume the kids loved them... or where these for the parents? ;)

Thanks! They were in fact for the kids, though I think the parents got more of a kick out of them.

Haha, either way I'm betting the parents had their fun with them.

These have become like a meditative act for me. It's an organic process that I'm really enjoying.

The latest addition. These are just so fun and quick. I can envision and realize an idea in about half an hour.

Those look great!  Do you just glue the mouthplate to the sock?  Or is there any cutting involved?

For the ones posted so far the mouth plate is just glued on, but I'm plotting one that would require some actual sewing.

More soldiers! Actually the next 15 or so will be commissioned work. A Special needs class is bidding farewell to a student and I was asked to make puppets!

Thank you for the enthusiasm. The process was inspired by a crafts channel I follow on facebook. Her method made a mouse, but I saw that it was easily modified.

Cool.  what do you do with the heel? Does it have any stuffing or foams?


Title: Re: Sock Creatures!

Currently it's just got the back of my hand in it. I did do a small foam insert in the nose of the zebra looking one that just rests on top of the fingers to create the nose.

I particularly liked the zebra looking one. :) .The length of the sock...what sort of length are they that you are using? When I use one of my socks, putting my hand in the heel as you have indicated, mine seem very long in the snout. Maybe I have a big foot. I have also tried putting a mouth card in the heel and putting a head foam in the toe to get a vertical puppet... sorta worked, but gave a very tall head.

It might be the size of my hands in all truth, or possibly that the sock winds up getting pinched behind the mouth pad rather than cut, that results in the fit. I'll take some measurements when I get home, but for now i can tell you that the bulk of them are the fuzzy socks that Dollar Tree sells.
