I have a memory of a sock monkey when I was growing up. It was when I was a small girl. Whether it's a true memory or not, I don't know, but it got me intrigued to make one. I've seen such cute ones online. So I tried it.
This monkey doesn't have a name yet. He doesn't look like Curious George, so that isn't his name.
He is for the granddaughters to play with.
What would I do different next time? Look for socks with a contrasting heel. That would make him more interesting.
Juliet loves to cuddle babies and monkies.
I would also leave more seam allowance. I've had to mend him already, because I cut too close to the seam.
You can find a couple of places with instructions online on how to make him.
I think I will try another one sometime soon.
