Candy Socks 糖果袜子

Candy Socks, I bought them from Sox World @ MYR11 for 5 pairs. Pick the colors that match your desired skin color.

糖果袜子,我从 Socks World 买 5 双 价钱是马币11,颜色可以选最接近你想要的肤色。

 

Step 1: Make the first nipple

第一步:制作第一个乳头  

 

We start by forming the nipple on the inverted side.

Firstly, turn the sock inside-out, do a running stitch on the tip of the sock (where your toes are), following the edge from one side to another.

我们从制作凹陷那端的乳头开始。

首先,把袜子内翻外,用平针缝的针法在袜子的里端(脚趾的位置),跟着边缘从一边缝到另一边。

 

 

Then, gently pull the thread to gather the fabrics together, tie a knot.

然后把线轻轻拉紧,使布缩在一起,打结固定。

 
 

 

Use yarn to loop around the tip you just formed.

Leave about 5cm extra yarn at the beginning so that you can tie a knot with it, 

loop yarn around for more than 10 times, tie a tight knot and cut off extra yarns. 

 

把毛线围着你刚才缩起来的布来回转十多个圈(开始时毛线要预出5cm做打结头用),在尾段打个紧紧的结头。把多余毛线剪掉。

 

Cut felt into two 7cm diameter round pieces, or whatever size you prefer the areola to be. Mark the center.

Attach one of the felt pieces onto the tip of the nipple.

把不织布剪出两片大约直径 7cm 的圆形,或者随你喜欢的乳晕尺寸。在圆圈正中央做记号。

把其中一片圆形不织布缝在乳头中间固定。

 
 

Turn socks back to the correct side, now you see an areola! 

Loop threads around the base of the nipple, tie a knot to form nipple. 

It's not inverted yet, we'll take care of that later.

 

把袜子翻回出来,乳晕出现啦!

用线围绕乳头根部转几圈,打结后形成乳头。这个乳头还没有凹陷,待会儿我们再给它凹。

 

Step 2: Make the second nipple 

第2步:制作另一个乳头

 

It's time to insert cotton fillings / polyester stuffings, fill up half of the sock.

是时候塞入棉花了,把棉花塞满半个袜子。

  

Use needle and thread to make a knot to secure the end.  

用针线封口。

 

Loop the knot with yarn like the first one, 

then cut off extra yarns.

 

用毛线围着结头转几圈,打结。把多余的毛线剪掉。

 

Cut an X shape in the center of the piece of felt we prepared earlier.

拿刚才准备好的圆形不织布片,在中间剪个十字形。

 

 

Insert sock into the hole of the felt.

把袜子塞入不织布的洞里。

 

Turn the sock all the way inside out to wrap around the breast. (Pic below is only turned half way)

把袜子整个翻过来包住乳房。(下图只是翻到一半)

 

Do a running stitch around the nipple.

在乳头周围用平针缝一圈。

Tighten thread gently to gather fabrics, tie a knot to complete the nipple. 

轻轻拉紧缩起,打结,形成乳头。

 

You may stitch through the nipple to hide your knot. (Do not cut off thread yet)

The normal nipple is completed!

 

以针穿过乳头隐藏结头。先别剪断线。

正常乳头完成了!

 

Step 3: Making Montgomery's glands

第3步:制作乳晕腺

 

If you have not cut off the thread, continue to stitch through the nipple and part of areola, exiting your needle from a random spot of the areola.

刚才的线还未剪断吧?直接把针穿过乳头和部分乳晕,让针从乳晕任何一部分出来。

 

Randomly making knots around the areola to create Montgomery's glands.

在乳晕周围打结形成许多乳晕腺。

 
 

 

Step 4: Make an inverted nipple

第4步:制作凹陷乳头

 

We've completed the second nipple, now its time to make an inverted nipple out of the first one.

To do that, we have to cut a small opening on the inner part of the edge of the sock's cuff.

完成了第二个乳头,现在是时候把第一个乳头弄凹陷了。 

要使它凹陷,我们要先在袜口边缘内侧剪开一个小小的洞。

 

 

Then we will insert an elastic band into the opening.

If you do not have elastic band like this one, you may use a rubber band instead.

 

我们要把松紧带穿入开口。

如果你没有松紧带,可用橡皮筋代替。

 

Use needle and thread to bring in the elastic band.

If you are using rubber band, since rubber bands are short, 

you may want to place a clip at the end, so that it won’t slide in all the way.

 

用针线把松紧带穿入洞里。

如果你用橡皮筋,由于橡皮筋较短,你或许要用个夹子夹住橡皮筋尾端,以免橡皮筋整条穿入。

 

 

 

Gather the fabrics until it surrounds the nipple, 

while still allowing the nipple to protrude if we stretch the elastic band. 

Tie a knot.

 

轻拉针线把袜口缩紧,刚好包住乳头,但稍微拉一拉就可以把乳头弄出来的大小。打个结。

 
 

Cut off extra elastic band.

把多余的松紧带剪掉。

 

With a little stretch, the knot will be hidden into the fabrics.

Don't forget to add Montgomery's glands for this areola as well!

 

拉一拉,结头就会隐藏起来。

 
 

You may adjust the opening up and down to form different types of nipples.

Look! Here's a flat nipple.

你可以随意调整乳头凸出多少。

看!平扁乳头。

 

Hide the nipple all the way inside, and there we have an inverted nipple!

Please note that this inverted nipple does not respond to the syringe nipple puller at all, therefore it's not suitable to demonstrate this method.

如果把整个乳头隐藏进去,就变成凹陷的乳头啰!

请注意,这凹陷的乳头对针筒抽吸乳头的方法完全不给反应,不适合用来示范。
