Homemade Cat Sock Supplies to Make a Sock Cat Toy For this project you will need an old pair of socks you no longer want and a pair of scissors. Find Two Socks To get started – dig through the laundry bin and find two old stinky and hole-filled socks you no longer want. Note – the socks do not necessarily have to match – so long as they are socks you no longer want! Tie and Cut the Socks Next, overlap two the socks at the center and tie the two socks together into tight knots. Using your scissors, cut all four sock ends into little strips at the end of each sock end to create a string effect on all four ends. This will give your kitty a place to grab at, chew on, and roll around in when playing with the toy.
