Loo Roll and Lost Sock Person
April 9th, 2011 by Craftylocks
I am sure we could repopulate the world with these little figures given the number of odd socks residing in everyones drawers! This is a great recycling craft that uses more than one item that would normally be destined for the rubbish bin.

You will need – 1 empty loo (toilet paper) roll, 1 odd sock, Paper – 2 colors (one to suit the face), Small piece of red paper, 1 strip of fabric, piece of chenille stick to match sock, Glue, 2 googly eyes, 1 very small pompom, and Scissors

Cut one strip from each of the colored papers so that they each cover half the length of the toilet paper roll. Glue in place and leave to dry.

Cut the foot from the sock and discard.

Twist the chenille stick around the sock a wee way down from the cut edge.

Time to assemble the person! Stretch the elasticated edge over the head of the toilet paper roll pulling down a bit at the back so it looks like a hat. Glue eyes and nose into place. Cut a mouth from the red paper and glue it on. Cut the scarf from a piece of fabric. I used cotton bias tape but felt or polar fleece works really well too. Snip the ends to look like tassles. Glue in place around the middle of the loo roll to look like a scarf.
