Rag Dolls to Make Yourself?
- A sock monkey is a common rag doll.
Dolls have been a part of history, both as a toy and for religious purposes, since prehistoric times, according to the website CTDollArtists.com. Throughout history, dolls have been made of whatever materials were available, including animal hides, clay, wood, corn husks and scraps of fabric. These fabric-scrap dolls are the type that many people think of when they rag dolls. A rag doll is one of the easiest dolls to make.
- A handkerchief doll is made all out of one square of fabric, often a handkerchief. The head is made by placing a round object such as a wooden or Styrofoam ball or a ball of scrap fabric into the center of the handkerchief and gathering the handkerchief around it. Then a piece of ribbon is tied at the base of the ball to hold the handkerchief in place. The resulting figure looks like a ghost with a round head. Next, tie a t-shirt knot into two corners of the handkerchief to form arms and hands. Gather all the cloth that hangs down past the arms and tie a ribbon around them to make your doll look as if it has a waist.
- The most important feature of this particular doll is that you use a pair of Rockford-type work socks with red heels. Begin by turning the socks inside out. Then take one sock and flatten it so that the heel faces upward, and sew two seams up the middle of the sock. Each seam should be offset from the center by about half an inch. Sew the seam from the mouth of the sock to about three inches from the heel. Cut the cloth between the two seams up to 1.5 inches from the sock. Then sew each tube closed at the ends. When you turn the sock monkey inside out, this will form the legs and leave an opening at the crotch. Turn the sock right-side-in again at the crotch hole. Stuff the sock monkey's body through this hole. Then stitch it closed using a whipstitch. To make the arms, tail, ears and mouth, cut the second sock in half widthwise. Form the arms by cutting the top piece of the sock down the middle and sewing the pieces on three sides. Then turn them inside out, stuff them and sew them onto the sides of the monkey. For the mouth, cut the heel from the sock and whipstitch it to the face (over the other heel) on three sides. Stuff it and whipstitch the mouth closed. For the tail, cut a one-inch strip from the top of the foot piece. Taper the tail strip by curving it over the toe. Seam the openings the same way you did the arms. Then stuff and attach. Ears are made by cutting semicircular pieces from the remaining brown sections of the sock, sewing together, stuffing and sewing onto the monkey's head. You may wish to finish your monkey by sewing on buttons for eyes and thread for a nose and mouth.
