Soapy the Sock Fish

Soapy the Sock Fish

Most kids love sudsing themselves, and this squeaky-clean toy helps small hands keep a grip on wet soap - without making a mess of the bar in the process.


  • A new or repurposed baby sock
  • Nondivisible embroidery thread and an embroidery needle
  • Bar of soap (we used Dove)


  1. Turn the sock inside out, then make eyes by sewing a couple of small stitches on either side of the toe just above the seam.
  2. Turn the sock right side out and put the bar of soap into the toe. Securely tie off the sock with a piece of thread and trim the ends. (Be sure to rinse the sock between bath times.)
