The kit includes everything you need to make your sock puppets, including stiffeners for the sock interior, Plastic Lacing Needles (super safe for kids!), buttons for eyes and noses and felt cutouts for tongues, hair and ears. You can use the R22004 Sockles or any unused socks to make your sock puppets!

Place your hand inside the sock puppet and mark the points where you would like to sew on the details such as the nose, eyes and ears.

Slide the stiffener inside the sock. This will help keep the sock taut while you sew on the details.

Now to pick your accessories! There are an assortment of button and felt shapes and sizes with either two or four holes to allow for easy sewing.

Here an art camper demonstrates how to sew a button onto the Sockle. Tie a knot at one end and feed inside the Sockle so the knot prevents the thread from sliding through completely. Pop the tip of the needle through the marker dot and pull the thread through.

Pull the needle through one hole in the selected button. Loop over and push down through the second hole.

Make sure you pull the thread all the way through to make it nice and tight!

You can layer the different accessories onto each other. Line up the holes to make the sewing seamless.
