Diy Cute Snake | DIY & Crafts Tutorials REVIEW: This is SUPER cute when completed. We had so many mismatched socks that ours is almost 6 feet long. One tip is that you should definitely use a sewing machine for the long seam. Also, leave 2 or 3 gaps in the long seam for stuffing after turning right side out - it is nearly impossible to stuff the whole length of a six-foot snake from just a hole at the end. Use a hidden stitch to close those gaps once stuffed.
