Busy Monday: DCC Blog Hop - Sock Monkey

In all the years I have been sewing, I have never made a sock monkey. I've never sewn anything using a sock, although technically, I have crafted with them. So when I was offered the chance to participate in this month's challenge...I totally accepted the challenge! I can assure you that this first little sock monkey is the "first"...of many more to come! It was actually really fun to make and the When Creativity Knocks VideoBook: "Sock Monkey Goes BanAnas", provided many tips, that made it easier and quicker!
My daughter's are already asking me to make another one, and are hoping for a girl sock we can have a mommy and daddy...and then make some babies! lol! They will be making some of the clothes for the monkey to wear and are still playing Rock, Paper, Scissors, to figure out who gets to cuddle with it first! He's already a great addition to our family of stuffies. Who knows...this just might give me reason to go bananas in the sock drawers, and make more monkeys and other stuffed creations too!

Nice blog! They will wear the clothes of some monkeys, still play rock, paper, scissors, and it is to figure out who gets hug! He is a great addition to our stuffies family.
