If you missed the program but would still like to make your own sock pal, there are plenty of tutorials and patterns that you can find online. This one here has plenty of photos and step-by-step instructions to help you. If you prefer to hand-sew or don’t have a sewing machine, you might want to look at this one here instead. Either way, though, this is a fairly complicated craft project that should probably be done under the supervision of an adult! It’s a great way to recycle a pair of socks that you no longer wear…just make sure you wash them first:)
