Sock Monkeys have become even more popular in the last couple years. All kinds of silly sock creatures have popped up! I had a cute pair of striped baby socks and decided to make a baby sock monkey for a gift for a friend. I always make the face first as it helps decide on the rest of the character. (I have a small drawer of heads that did not make it any further perhaps someday they will become some sort of creature!)
I thought this wee guy had a please take me home expression. The fun thing about making sock characters and using child or baby socks is you can get wonderful fun patterns and need to only do some hand sewing to create a cute playmate! Happy National Craft Month! Debra, CEO!
