This reversible sock plush tutorial is a fun craft and a great way to introduce kids to making stuffies!
My daughter just loves this reversible plushie I made for her, and she cannot wait to make one herself! I used socks with Fairfield World’s Poly-Fil stuffing to make this cushiony, reversible stuffed animals. One side is a cute and cuddly penguin, and when you flip the plush animal inside out it turns into a snuggly panda.
As I mentioned before, this is a great craft to make for kids and also WITH kids. The sewing is pretty basic, and kids always have fun playing with Poly-Fil stuffing. It’s like holding a cloud, my son says.

Another fun project to make with socks and Poly-Fil is this cute sock angel. This one also uses Poly-Pellets as filler so it can stand and be used for decor instead of as a toy.
