Sock Monkeys Part II

Sock Monkeys

Sock Monkeys

So here is part two of the sock monkey extravaganza.  I found that the fuzzy, soft, bright socks make the best sock monkeys because they hide seams better for imperfect sewers like myself, and the colors are beautiful and the fabric is soft and stretchy, so you can stuff them extra.  I got these socks at the dollar store.

My daughter created a face and added some color to Emma (the sock monkey with the giant E on her chest).

I’m so addicted I know I’ll make more…  They are quick and simple to make and I learned some extra tips and tricks from watching a couple of You Tube tutorials…

What inspired this creation? 

I jumped on the bandwagon: the sock monkey craze.  I became weak and couldn’t resist.  I wanted to know what all the fuss was about.  They are cute and easy and cheap to make, all structured from 2 little socks.

Materials Used? 

I used some fluffy, colorful socks purchased from the Dollar Tree, a needle and thread, and poly-fill stuffing and 2 buttons for eyes, along with a pair of scissors.

How’d you do it?

I used a patten from the internet; if you type in “sock monkey instructions images” into the Google search engine, you can get plenty of patterns.  One sock is utilized for the head, legs and torso.  The other sock is used for ears, tail, arms, ears and mouth/nose.

Purpose?

This craft is for entertainment purposes only, but quite fun and easy to make.  It makes a great gift for a loved one, and you can be as creative as you’d like to be.  Check out these fun and awesome sock monkey creations at the following links:
