How to Make Easy No-Sew Sock Dolls Crafts Idea for Kids

Crafts Materials Needed

- Stretchy Socks  – I used Knee High Girls Socks
- Small Rubber Bands or Yarn
- Buttons or Sharpie Marker or Fabric Markers or Needle and Thread
- Stuffing
-Scissors

Step 1



Step 1 : Making No-Sew Sock Monkey Dolls Crafts Project



Take out your sock.

Step 2



Step 2 : Making No-Sew Sock Monkey Dolls Crafts Project



Put stuffing in your sock…all the way down to the tip of the sock.


Step 3



Step 3 : Making No-Sew Sock Monkey Dolls Crafts Project



Now on side ‘A’, form a ball by making sure that some of the stuffing is at that corner and then just pushing down with your thumbs to form a ball.

Step 4



Step 4 : Making No-Sew Sock Monkey Dolls Crafts Project



If this doll is being made for a young child (under 3 or 4 of age) you should use yarn instead of a rubber band, just in case it comes off….it could be a choking hazard. If you use a rubber band just put the rubber band around the ball until it is tight. If you are using yarn, wrap it around that ball-shape and tie knots and wrap it around more and tie more knots…then cut it off.

Step 5



Step 5 : Making No-Sew Sock Monkey Dolls Crafts Project



Do the same thing for the other foot, side B.

Step 6



Step 6 : Making No-Sew Sock Monkey Dolls Crafts Project



Now put stuffing above the feet for the baby doll’s belly.

Step 7



Step 7 : Making No-Sew Sock Monkey Dolls Crafts Project



Now make 2 arms the same way that you made the feet.

Step 8



Step 8 : Making No-Sew Sock Monkey Dolls Crafts Project



Tie the yarn or rubber band next for the neck.

Step 9



Step 9 : Making No-Sew Sock Monkey Dolls Crafts Project



Add stuffing to the sock for the doll’s head and then again, tie off with rubber band or yarn.

Step 10



Step 10 : Making No-Sew Sock Monkey Dolls Crafts Project



Now there is extra sock above the head….fold it down over the head to form a hat for the doll.

Step 11



Step 11 : Making No-Sew Sock Monkey Dolls Crafts Project



This is what is should look like…another pic is below.



Step 11 : Making No-Sew Sock Monkey Dolls Crafts Project



This is what the doll looks like so far.

Step 12

Now we have to choose a way to put the eyes on…thinking about the safety of the child we are making it for. If this is for a child that doesn’t put little items in his mouth anymore…then I would say use buttons  – they look super cute. You can either sew the eyes on or you can use either strong fabric glue or hot glue ( in that case, please ask a parent for help so you don’t get hurt.)



Step 12 : Making No-Sew Sock Monkey Dolls Crafts Project



Otherwise, you can sew dolls eyes, use fabric paint or sharpie, permanent markers. If you have any other ideas for eyes, please let me know.

This is what your doll will look like. He is super cute. And my 4 year old loves this baby doll. She was playing with him for quite a long time and talking to him and feeding him, etc. So I think this craft was a hit.

    Hi the idea is good but it should be improved so it would look good maybe if you sow on the arms and legs would make it more cool

    Ala- good idea but then it wouldn’t be “How to make easy NO SEW sock dolls” if you sewed to arms on. x

    LOL – Yes. It is quite simple to make something very cute if you can sew it. However, I would like to say that my 2 daughters were in love with the sock doll…they love the little baby hat and both are still smitten with the 2 dolls. So it is up to a persons taste whether they think it is cute or not.

    what do you do with the heel part of the sock?

  19. admin

    11.22.2011

    Since you will be stuffing the doll up to the heel of the sock…the arms will be made from the stuffing underneath the heel. Then the heel will be under the rubber band or yarn of the neck being made in step #8. You won’t see the heel sticking out at all, as it will be beneath the rubber band. I hope this helps.

    hello :D
    may i ask how long should the sock be? half way to the knee or up to below the knee or just above the ankle or something? thanks :)

  21. admin

    12.17.2011

    They really can be any size…but it works best if they are knee socks…but just under the knee is good too…this way there is enough fabric for the hat at the top.

    12.25.2011

    will the sole be the face of the doll? :D

    I printed a copy of the instructions for making sock doll and sent to my sisters friend’s daughter (age 7). along with a sample. The little girl was thrilled , sent me a “thank you” note and said she was going to make them to sell. My daughter-in-law(teacher) likes them and plans to do them with her class for a “charity” project”

    I am in love w this doll! Was looking for a way to expand on Comfort Dolls that are for women survivors of abuse. I teach K at a school that is the sending school for 3 area shelters. I wanted to create a small Comfort Kids doll that cud be attached by a snapping ring to homeless kids backpacks. They would have access to a tiny, tactile source of comfort on way into n out of school, in their cubby and on the school bus. They cud be removed to play with at home or shelter, or sleep with. They would arrive with a card expressing the doll being made with the love that is held within the little doll. We will turn them into lil monsters for the boys.

    I want to make them w my kindergarteners. A few will help me deliver them to the shelters. I think this will be a perfect Community Service introduction for my Sweet Pea’s. If its not too hard they will make another to do a secret exchange with each other for Christmas.

    I am so EXCITED n will keep u posted n send pics…

    Hugs, gratitude n joy,
    Cindy
