19_Vomitones

15 May

Ever wondered what would happen if you puked so hard that you turned yourself inside out? Not a very nice thought, but just in case check this Vomitone guys…

These’ll take you about 1.45-2 hrs. (way less if you have a sewing machine)

You´ll need:

_2 old socks. Better if they’re from a different pair.

_Scissors

_Thread and needle (I only used black but you can choose the colours you want depending on the colour of your socks)

_4 buttons (try different colours and sizes; these will make the eyes of your Vomitones)

How to make ’em:

1. Cut the bit-were-you-put-your-feet off each sock.

2. Cut the straight parts you’re left with the same lenght.

3. Turn one of them inside out and slide it inside the other, making sure both their ends meet.

4. Sew both ends. You`ll be left with a closed sock rectangle.

5. Grab the rectangle from both sides and stretch it, as if you were trying to open a pack of crisps of something similar. Make sure you pull both socks in each direction.

6. Grab your scissors and cut both socks on one side. Check the image below to make this clearer. This opening is the Vomitones’ mouth.

7. Sew both socks on each “lip” of the mouth. To make it nice and neat, fold the ends in between the socks and then sew them together. You should now be able to turn the socks inside out and back again through the mouth.

8. Sew a couple buttons on one side, above the mouth.

9. Turn your Vomitone inside out and sew the other 2 buttons.

That´s it! Now you’ve got a friend that can puke itself inside out to become another!

Imagine other characters, maybe with more or less eyes, or try adding arms and legs… have fun and please, don´t try turning yourself inside out!!
