Check out Part II of this project to learn about how to make your sock animal beep, honk or speak using the maker technique of circuit bending …
When you’re making your sock animal, remember to leave an open seam in the body part where you want to insert the noise-maker and don’t overstuff to allow room for that part to come.
*SAFETY NOTE: We recommend and adult helper anytime you’re sewing, since you’re working with needles and scissors. We particularly recommend an adult for circuit bending, which can involve some sharp objects and basic soldering, depending on the parts involved.
