How To Sew Sock Kitty

How to Sew Sock Kitty

I wanted to try sewing sock plushies since months ago but keep on postponing due to my long craft lists and ideas, until I saw Brenda of KrafteeBee posted her long ear sock cat, Gumbo, I can’t resist for not asking her to guest post in Craft Passion. I want to share with you how to sew sock plushies while I learn from her!!!

Brenda, who is also known as Sweetee Bee in KrafteeBee blog is a working mum with 2 lovely 20 month-old twins, Aiden and Caileigh, twins! TWINS? Yes, TWINS!!! How astonishing that she can handle both of them, yet, work and craft at the same time!!!! She told me she craft while her twins are having their naps. Looks like sock plushies is the perfect sewing craft for some quickie projects during kid’s naptime, moreover, when they wake up, they will have a brand new soft stuffed toy to play with.

Let’s see how to sew this cute little sock kitty, Brenda called her Lenny, after this jump.

  14. hello my name is kira and i am 12 i have been into makeing yarn dolls and and any thing that includes sewing and string and i was wondering if you can make a sock into a sea turtle ?

  15. Why do you have a pin on the bottom of the sock on the first pic? I’m working on a couple today, & noticed when I filled them, the bottom is round.

    • Hi, this is Joanne, the owner of Craft Passion. I would like to answer your question on behalf of the guest tutor, Brenda. Pinning the sock at the bottom is just to make sure that sock is well align before cutting it.
      Squeeze and mould the bottom to make it as flat as possible so that it can stand (at least for a while). If you really want to let it stand without support, perhaps you can cut a small round cardboard and insert into the bottom, fill it with some polybeads or rice then follow by the polyfill.

  16. Ok, that’s what I was hoping you’d say. While waiting on an answer, I restarted my sock cat, & used one of my daughter’s socks that had a missing mate. I happened to have a bag of polybeads, I put about 4tbsp in the bottom of it. So far, its sitting up on its own. I tweaked it a little, so my ears looked like ears. I snipped the top, like she did, but I just pulled the top back, & sewed it shut. The ears look better then on my first. I wish I had a way to upload so you could see…but don’t at the moment

  19. Hi! found the gorgeous purple sock kitty, but it seems the link to Krafteebee no longer works! I wanted to know what happens to the ankle ‘bulge’?! Do I cut it off and just use the foot part or leg part? I bought some kiddie socks because they have cute patterns, but I’m now thinking I should have bought adult socks! ? Any ideas?!!! Thanks

  20. I made this for my friend an it’s so cute! It was very easy and I made it in about 30 minutes!

  21. I spent hours on it and it still looks so horrible. I guess it takes talent to make one. >:(

  22. Thanks for the great sock kitty tutorial, I featured it on my blog! 🙂

  23. This little kitty is so cute and adorable! I love the tutorial..I especially love the color and its eyes! Super cute! I featured this in my blog: Thanks for sharing!
