Socky snakes

My son and I had an idea.  Make socks into snake puppets; "Socky Snakes"  A pair of old socks, one with a hole in it, buttons for eyes, and a ribbon cut into a tongue.  My son particularly wanted a blue tongue (perhaps he remembered seeing a blue tongue lizard?) 

You can't see that clearly, but he also used a dark red marker pen to make dots and stripes on the body.  I got him to choose the buttons he wanted from my thrifted button stash, I then stitched with needle and thread. 

He called his snake "Teresa" - an interesting name for a snake?!

    As soon as the current Make Craft Your Business course is under control, I'd love to get in touch with you and see what we can work together on.
