Here’s a simple little idea, if you’re into sewing and artsy-craftsy stuff: You can use socks to make nifty little ragdoll bodies.
Starting at the toe, cut the sock up the middle - a little more than halfway - then sew each half shut to make legs (the uncut part is the doll’s torso).
Stuff the body with cotton batting, sew on a couple little arms (you can make them out of part of another sock, thus ridding yourself of not one but two lonelies!).
You can make the doll’s head out of whatever you want; cloth, clay, wood, etc., depending on what the finished product is going to be used for (e.g., is it going to be decorative, or a plaything?).
Make the doll a cute little costume out of colorful fabric remnants, ribbon and the like, and you’re all done. Yay!
