dolls made from socks -- I ADORE these. They are so sweet and simple and cuddly for a very young baby and a toddler, too. I made a tiny one today from an infant sock and put in a quiet book I'm making that has a little pocket "bed." It turned out sooooo cute. PS --I used french knots for eyes --safer than beads.
Stuffed fabric turtles.
Socktopuses: Take a sock, stuff with fabric or plastic bags. Sew shut. Cut bottom of sock into legs. Ta-Da.
