I actually made this last year but I haven't had any time for making things since then so haven't been on here for a while- sometimes looking at other people's wonderful creations is just too depressing when there's no way you can do it yourself!
I made this sock monkey for a friend's 4 year old daughter. All the seams are double stitched and all the clothes come off because I always hated having toys with sewn on clothes! The pictures have the two different outfits I'd intended, although Daisy likes creating her own combinations! None of the clothes are made from patterns (I'm far too impatient) so were a bit trial and error but turned out ok in the end.
The skirt is reversible and has a bit of ribbon with no tutu attached at the back to make room for the tail. Daisy also likes to use it as a cloak! There are sequins sewn to one layer, which you can just about see. The bag here is also reversible to match either outfit, while keeping the spare outfit inside and the orange top is actually long enough to use as a dress as well.
The buttons are just there for decoration and the coat has popper studs to fasten it instead- I never trust the button hole function on my machine!
I found this random 'M' pin in my button box- no idea where it came from. It didn't have a safety catch so I covered the sharp bits with a bit of velvet ribbon at the back.
The dress has a slit up the back for the tail (forgot to take a picture!) and hook and eye catches to fasten it.
I was quite pleased with the big collar but the big hole for the tail was a bit weird so I made the ribbon with the bow on to poke out of the back- it fastens on with a popper stud so the bow stays looking nice.
Thanks for looking!
