1

Find a sock that you would like to make your snuggly sock slug with.

2

Fold the sock inside out

 

Lie the sock flat so that the heel faces up

 

Cut the two feelers (a V shape) into the toe of the sock

 

Leave a space of one inch by the heel

 

3

Sew a seam on both sides of the 'V' shaped section

 

Turn the sock so it is no longer inside out

 

4

Choose some polystyrene balls to be used as eye balls and push them up to the end of the feelers

 

Or... you can just use extra wadding at

the top to 'plump' out the eye balls
