Cut off the end of one sock about 5.5” away from the end of the toes. This will make the octopus body.
Roll a 1.5” flap on the open end of the sock (it should look like a small winter hat), and cut 8 small evenly spaced slits in the rolled over edge.
Cut the other part of the sock into 8 long, thin strips. Pull on both ends of the strips to roll them into a tentacle shape.
Insert one tentacle into each opening and tie it around the bottom of the body.
Stuff the body with the other sock, and tuck the knots and slits up inside so they aren’t visible.
S Sew/or glue two buttons onto the body for eyes.
