Handmade Christmas: Sock Monkeys

This was the very first project I worked on for Christmas.  I think they turned out so darling.  My girls have all requested one for themselves.

I used knee high socks to make these.  Some fuzzy and furry and some not.

I like them both equally.  These are pretty dang cute.  The fuzzy socks do help to hide your stitches a little easier however.  
I got the Sock Monkey pattern from Craft passion.  Her tutorial is so great and complete that I am not going to do my own and just send you over there.

The only tips I would give is in selecting your socks.  Make sure you have something that doesn’t have too much stretch in it.  Pull on them when you are buying and see if they stretch too much and go translucent.  You don’t want this because when you stuff your sock monkey it will get big and bloated and the sock will go translucent.  Not so great.  I also highly recommend knee highs.  They are much much cuter.
