Goofy Gator Sock Puppet

This alligator has a bark worse than its bite. Its seemingly sharp teeth are nothing more than soft white felt.

What You Need:

Make this adorable gator puppet for everyday entertainment.
  • Green socks
  • Scissors
  • Sewing machine
  • Green felt
  • Batting


1. To form the mouth, cut along the toe seam of a green sock, and then sew a red felt oval to the opening and add teeth around the edges.

2. Cut a tail, round eyes, and a nose from the matching sock, stuff the pieces with batting, and stitch onto the puppet. Stitch a green felt zigzag strip down the gator's back and tail.
