We’ve already talked about sock monkeys this week, but what else can you make out of socks?  Over at Craft Passion, Joanne used plain ol’ white socks to make a squishy little skeleton couple just in time for Halloween!  Using a pattern she found on the Martha Stewart website, she adapted it and added her own details to create  both a male and female version.  Each skeleton is constructed using a pair of socks, one that becomes the body and another that is assembled into the limbs.  She even did an adorable photo shoot with the bony lovebirds, so be sure to check them out!  [how to make skeleton sock dolls]
