Low Cut Socks

I needed a baby gift and I thought I would make a little piggy sock animal from low cut socks. He could pass as a cow too, but I would use polka of dot socks. Surprisingly, it was easy to make, just follow the photos and you can create your own piggy!

Supplies:
  • Low cut socks
  • Stuffing
