Sock Addiction

There has been a lot of sock sewing activity. And I mean a lot. A friend discovered this book Sock Appeal and it's the favorite book this summer. There have been daily sewing sessions and lots of creatures. The older ones taught the younger two how to thread a needle and sew. It's been fun to watch the creation of the new critters that become their favorite lovies to snuggle with.
We had to buy a lot of socks so we went off to the dollar store to stock up. The funny thing is I went with all 5 kids to the store. The owners were very friendly and enjoyed watching my family buy all these socks probably thinking we were were stocking up for the fall. I just didn't have the heart to tell them all these sock were going to be cut up for sewing.
What do the kids with the round scraps from the top of the socks?
We did try the silly bands for a short while but these seem to be way cooler and more original.

What a fun project for kids. I'll have to break this one out on a rainy day.
