this is a really fun and easy project... i know it is only a few days before x-mas and if you need a last minute gift this is perfect. but it is even good just for the wintry months.
you will need::
- a tube sock (with striped or colorful opening)
- rice (filling)
- assorted buttons (buttons and eyes)
- ribbon (scarf)
- hot glue gun
- needle & thread

what to do...
- turn sock inside out and fill with rice, twist the middle of the sock and tie off with a ribbon.
- fill top part with rice and sew opening shut.
- turn the top of the sock (striped part) over and hot glue down
- add buttons
- for the nose you could use a piece of orange felt and for the mouth small felt circles OR a sharpie?

Question:  how did you get the cheeks pink like that?

Unfortunately, I can't use my husband's socks...too many holes! haha!
I bet I could stock up at the dollar store...

Would the rice attract insects?

i suppose if you don't store them properly the rice could attract weavles (sp?)
but maybe instead of rice you could use those little beads they use in beanie babies??

those are awfully cute.. i especially love how the stripeys at the top make the hats

also... couldn't u just put the rice in some sort of plastic baggie inside to stop this whole weavel [ive never heard of these] thing?
