Time to make more DIY handmade 'plushie' mascots out of socks! As volunteers prep up for International Year of the Reef 2018 activities!
Singapore got wild sea turtles which are often sighted on our shores. Sea turtles are easy to make out of these cute socks with a heart shape. So we get 'Hearts' bill sea turtles! Cut out the shapes from the sock, using the heel for the head, and cut out the base from a firmer material to hold the shape of the sock when it gets stuffed. We get one nudibranch out of the remaining toe portion of the sock!
marine snakes and they are easy to make from long socks. Add a ribbon tongue for a lively touch.
crocodiles too! Crocodiles can be cute!
marine fish. And even wild whales too.
stingrays and flatfishes (the photo includes a horseshoe crab, often mistaken for a stingray).
mega fauna in Singapore waters.

Did you make a plushie marine vertebrate? I would love it if you could share a photo of it!
