What you need:

  • Baby socks 
  • Felt scraps 
  • A needle and thread 
  • Fabric markers

What to do:

  1. Sew felt scraps for the ears, eyes, and nose to the toe end of the socks so your baby sees the faces when wearing them. (Make the stitches secure so your baby can't pull off the felt pieces.)
  2. Use fabric markers to finish your creation.
  3. Encourage your baby to reach for his new footsie pal!
