I've wanted to try making a sock monkey for a while now, but since we live in the tropics, we don't wear socks very much and I haven't really had any 'spare' to use!
So when I collected my pile of clothing from the school carnival with the intention of upcycling them all to sell at next year's carnival, I made sure to include some socks in what I collected.
This pair seemed just perfect for a monkey, so I found a pattern to try here and set to work cutting, stitching and stuffing.
This is all that was left over at the end!
I'm very pleased with how he turned out - and I know my girls are going to love him!
There is such a variety of sock 'creatures' to make - just take a look at my
for some that I've found so far.
They're quite easy to make too - so I think this is something I'm going to teach my girls and they can help me make some friends for this little guy!
Have you ever made a sock monkey..or other sock creation?
