I had a pair of adorable tights that no longer fit Kirsten and I just couldn’t part with them. I decided to turn them into a stuffed snake for her. Now my sewing skills are so bad it’s almost embarrassing, so if I can make this, anyone can. She loves her little snake – or ‘worman’ as she calls it – and has been taking it to bed with her every night. Here’s how I made it:
What you’ll need:
an old pair of tights
needle and thread
Here’s how you make it:
Find an old, cute pair of tights:
Using your scissors, cut one of the legs off. Find 2 buttons (mine don’t even match!) and sew them on the snake.
Cut a tongue out of your piece of felt and sew onto the snake. I pinched the end of the tights and sewed the tongue into the pinched part.
Here’s what the tongue looks like – see how it’s in the ‘pinched’ part:
Stuff your snake and tie the end shut. If you have sewing skills that are better than mine, you could even sew the end shut and make it look a little more professional. I don’t care and neither does Kirsten, so I tied the end which was quick and easy.
Isn’t she cute??
