Materials to create a sock octopus plush

Step 1: Grab some batting and stuff it into your sock. You will stuff it all the way to the toe. Continue adding stuffing until you have a nice firm ball.

Step 2: Cut a long piece of thread and wrap it around your sock under your stuffing. You will tie a knot and pull it nice and tight to keep your batting from coming out. I would recommend tying a few knots. Cut the excess thread.

Step 3: Take your scissors and begin cutting strips from the top of the sock, all the way to the bottom of your batting. I cut my strips about a half-inch. Continue cutting strips until you have cut the entire sock.
