Sock monkey




















I'd like to introduce to you my new friend (he hasn't got a name yet). I saw some monkeys made out of a pair of socks in a shop yesterday and rushed home to make one. I thought once I had made a prototype I could get my children to have a go, but this version is a bit tricky due to lots of sewing.  I need to come up with an easier version. Watch your socks!

Sock monkey is fantastic! Bet you had fun making him. I love the fact that you saw something, got inspired, then went home and tried it out for yourself. Brilliant! x

Hi, I saw your post via the Blog Carnival. I also make sock monkeys and have been doing so since November 2010. I used to hate sewing at school so this has taken me by surprise LOL Good luck with yours, alison

Hi Ali, have just had a look at your little monkeys - they are fab! I'm glad you are now enjoying sewing it was the only thing I was good at at school lol so thank goodness i have been able to have a creative business. Isn't the blog carnival great? I love seeing what everyone is up to and see how they juggle family and work. Thanks for posting.

PS: Ali I tried to leave a comment on your blog but when I registered with wordpress the password they gave me had a hash key in it and I don't have a hash key on my keyboard! I tried a few times to get a new one without the hash but... guess what there is always a hash needed so sorry i couldn't comment : ( Steph
