Pattern Description:

This irresistable trio are the Sockborns. Made from soft baby socks, they are the cuddliest little handfuls you'll ever meet. Each doll takes only one sock to complete. Their simple little one piece outfits are made from t-shirt knit - in fact, we cut up old t-shirts to make them. So quick and easy to make, you'll want to whip up a dozen of them! Little kids can't resist playing with them, posing them and arranging them all over the house. We'll include the pattern to make the dolls from baby socks, plus simple patterns for their clothes, with complete, illustrated, step-by-step instructions. We show them made from baby socks, but different size socks will produce all sorts of different size dolls! This is a perfect project to do with a beginning sewer. Remember, if you are making these dolls for a young child, embroider the eyes and hair on, or use a fabric paint for them.

  • dolls measure about 5"-10" depending on the sock size


  • baby/child size sock
  • 4 oz of polyfil
  • embroidery floss for hair and eyes (if embroidering)
