      How to Make a Halloween Sock Skeleton: Use a sock monkey idea to make a spookier but still cuddly skeleton. Claire Chauvin of Houston, Texas, demonstrates one of her Halloween creations: the sock skeleton, which is a Halloween-themed take on the familiar sock monkey. Materials and Tools: pair of white athletic socks, white cotton thread, needle, scissors, permanent marker for fabric, stuffing material (plastic grocery store bags, shredded old T-shirts or underwear) Steps: 1. Turn the first sock inside out and flatten it so that the heel is facing you to form the skeleton body. Make a cut from the cuff of the sock to the point where the heel starts and round the ends where the "feet" will be for the skeleton. 2. Turn the skeleton body inside out and sew the legs up, making sure to leave a hole between the legs for stuffing. 3. Stuff the body without fancy stuffing. Wad up a plastic grocery store bags, shred old T-shirts/underwear or stuff with the traditional polyester stuffing. 4. To create a neck and head stitch around the sock a couple of inches from the toe. Create a waist for the skeleton in the same method. 5. Cut off the foot part of the sock and reserve the "leg" part for the arms. 6. Cut the leg part in half lengthwise, cut one end of each leg into a curve (the "hand") and turn them inside out. Sew up the sides and leave an open end for stuffing. Stuff the arms. 7. Sew the arms to the body. Remember to tuck in the edges of the armhole. 8. Find some images or use your imagination to draw the Halloween sock skeleton's details with a permanent marker. Don't forget the back of the skeleton.
