I've always thought the empty body for a sock monkey looks like a frog, so I made one. He's pretty funny. His new owner's named him Google



He was easy to make
Here's the pattern from the socks


Follow a similar construction to a sock monkey once it's all cut out:
-Stitch legs inside out, leaving the gap in the crotch open, bag out and stuff. Slip stitch the crotch shut
-stitch the arms inside out, bag out and stuff. THis bit was difficult because I made them quite skinny and they're running diagonally across grain of the sock, so they don't stretch.
-Once the arms and legs are stuffed stitch 3 lines down the feet and hands to create the webbing
-stitch arms to frog
-run a gathering stitch around the edge of the eye circles, gather and stuff and stitch closed
-stitch to the top of the frog's head
- then embroider a mouth (I followed the line of the toe seam) and add some crazy buttons for eyes

Viola! A sock frog!!

He looks much better than the official Rockford Red Heel sock frog.  I like how yours is all elongated and his bug-eyes are fantastic.  I will be sure to post mine if I make one.

Thanks guys. His eyes are actually some crazy buttons I had in my stash, with a dot of black nailpolish for pupils. I'd be lost without black nail polish- it has so many crafty uses.

I also made him out of kid's socks, so if you used women's or men's socks you'd get even longer arms and legs  Smiley And you're right lil_abi, I think Google's cuter than the rockford ones too  Wink

meanwhile, your frog is great!

Okay, I was looking for the sock monkey tutorial (which was awesome!) and then clicked on this. Instant change of plans to make sock frogs instead of sock monkeys...

Thanks!
