My 15 month old loved helping out on this one. First we took fuzzy socks and rolled them into balls, which he instantly dubbed 'carcars', due to their similarity to wheels. Then I stitched the balls together, which was a little trickier, but we managed to avoid any catastrophic toddler-needle interactions.
Link was so taken by the 'carcars' that I decided to give the sockapillar wheels for feet.
I tried to sew him a smile, but it came out crooked--oh well, so he is an evil sockapillar. At least he is still cuddly.
Oh noes he is escaping!
