For the past week or so, Leo has been putting socks on his hands. I knew it was time to make a sock puppet.
I let Leo choose a sock from the pile of (clean!) socks Craig recently culled from his drawer. He picked two buttons from the container of buttons my mom gave me and played with the rest while I sewed the two that he selected onto the sock. I used a crochet hook to attach some yarn to the “head” using the same method that is used to attach fringe. Ta-da! Sock puppet! Leo hasn’t quite gotten the hang of how to work the mouth, but he enjoys reacting to the puppet when I use it.
