My First Sock Monkey

Sock Monkey“Ehhh, monkey!”
Yeah, it’s yet another craft. For some reason the other day I decided I wanted to make the Snook a sock monkey. It was a really quick project and I finished it in just a couple hours. I found the original instructions, but I ended up using this page more. As you can see, it turned out all wonky. (His arms, for example, are clearly not lined up.) The Snook likes it though, and he’s named him “Johnny Vegas” (after the comedian that did the On Digital ads with the sock monkey in the UK).

  2. Oh. My. God. Kris. I. Want. One. Of. Those. MONKEES! Olivia the Humperific Chihuahua needs one so she can hump it! I would gladly pay you Thursday for a hamburger today! tee hee!

  3. You want me to make you one? I craft for cash, baby! 🙂

  4. Dude, I will so give you cash! Viv needs a new hump friend. Email me your address and how much – I’ll send it to you asap.

  5. I have made sock monkeys for each of my kids and am about to start a third for a friends little girl. I love being a dad.

  6. That’s awesome! Crafty dads rock.

  7. my mom has been promising to make me a sock monkey for 6 months, but she can’t buy the socks in the uk. where did you get yours? ps, i am 22 and need a sock monkey now!

  8. You can use any old socks, Kerry! Mine are actually cheap workman’s socks from Kmart. I picked up some stripey knee socks recently to do some prettier ones. To be honest, I think the ones made with the Rockford red-heeled socks look kinda scary…
