Jolly Giraffe Sock Puppet

This giraffe sticks its neck out in style.

What You Need:

A kneesock creates the long neck, and felt forms the trademark spots and mane.
  • Scissors
  • Socks
  • Sewing machine
  • Batting
  • Black felt
  • Black buttons


1. Cut lollipop-shape horns, oval ears, and eyelid shapes from the matching sock. (Our partner sock had stripes on the cuff, which we incorporated into the eyelids for flirty lashes.)

2. Stuff the horns with batting; stitch closed and cover the tips with black felt. Sew the horns and ears in place.

3. Use the eyelid sock pieces, white felt circles, and black buttons to create the eyes.
