No-Sew Sock Snowman – All steps

Upcycle some white socks and create this adorable, frotte winter guy.
The best thing I find about this adorable, No-Sew Sock Snowman is that actually, it doesn't have to be a snowman at all. It doesn’t even have to be a kid's craft too. As soon as you start experimenting with your creativity, you’ll see what can come out of this bumpy, rice sock body! Check out the end of our video tutorial! ;)

Last but not least, such a No-Sew Sock Snowman (with rice inside), is an excellent moisture absorber which especially works inside the car!

MY TIPS: Use double sided tape to adjust buttons. Sew black beads as his eyes if you are worried about safety. Use 2 terry socks to make the sock snowman body fluffier and whiter than white. Check the pictures below to see a simple tape trick while pouring the rice. Striped, colorful socks may be a funny substitute for Snowman’s clothes.

What you need:

Tools:

  • Scissors
  • Super Glue (double sided tape, optional)

Supplies / ingredients:

  • One, frotte sock
  • Pins
  • Buttons
  • Scrap fabric
  • Thread
  • 1kg of Rice
1

Prepare all tools and supplies such as: scissors, wide tape, super glue, pins, thread, white terry sock, buttons, scrap fabric and about 1kg of rice.

Cut off the foot part of the sock just few inches before the heel. The foot part is going to be a hat later on.

…and this part is going to be the body!

Turn it on the left side before you tie the end with a thread.

Take a piece of thread and wrap the end of the cut sock very tight with it

Now turn it back to the right side.

Take the wide tape ring and pull the cuff of the sock through it. Stretch it over the tape ring to make it more comfortable to pour the rice into it.

Pour the rice into the sock, you can use the measuring dish instead of a spoon, it’ll probably be faster. The more rice you add, the more bumpy your snowman will be, but we estimated 1kg was the limit.

Shape Snowman’s body a bit before you tie it on top and shape his head

Tie the top with a thread to close the body. Do it firm to avoid the rice from coming out.

Cut the thread leftover, we want him to be smart and handsome!

Shape the head by tying a thread around the “neck” few times.

Fold the foot part of the sock 2 or 3 times to make a cosy hat

Pour a little bit of super glue onto the button and carefully stick it to his belly (you may optionally use double sided tape!). Do the same thing with a second button.

The most important part is the face that means personality ;) Take three pins and make this cute, little face appear!

    I made these for Christmas gifts this year, they turned out so cute!! A couple of my Co workers said I should make more and sell them. Am I allowed to do that as the idea/pattern is yours, not mine?
