Happy newyear!! hope everyone is well!

for xmas I made a few sock monkeys as I had a Paul Frank monkey at home and it didnt look that hard (and it cost like $20!) so I gave it a try!!

I used this pattern to help me figure out how to do it ๐Ÿ™‚

So here it goes! 2 socks!

 

Cut sock 1

Cut sock two(this will be the body)

Dont forget to sew things inside out

When stuffing make sure not to fray the edges as it makes it super hard to sew(and looks ugly)

Vwalaa!!!

Ive made a couple since these aswell.. My suggestion is not not use ‘winter’ socks and get the moreย  so jersey knit socks as they tend to fray less and looks less bunchy when stuffing ๐Ÿ™‚
And getting socks that have a different coloured heal to the rest of the sock ๐Ÿ™‚
