I made a dozen sock monkeys, really, and I gave them all away! I let my daughters customize theirs, my youngest has a sock monkey that has no arms or eyes per her request. *rolls eyes*
but I have only two pics of the ones I completed

First is my gun monkey that I gave to my friend angie, her cat....is not to enthused about this new addition to their tiny family.


and here are the others, some are missing eyes. I took this late night, early morning.......and please disregard the fact I am a total perv (LOL)


the toe sock monkey was grabbed up by my sociology teacher before i even had him stuffed! She was like I WANT THAT! haha

the pink and black one has a toe sock mohawk and skirt. I modified the original idea of using the heel of the sock as the mouth, instead I cut off the end of the sock(as in the opening of the sock) sewed it shut and BAM, awesome monkey lips!

My fav is the gun totting one with a bandanna - very cool!  A little nuts too taking on a kitty like that.

I just made my first sock critter last night / today.  A rabbit-esque moster.  Now I'm addicted - I can see why you've done so many.  Heading down to the op-shop on Wednesday for more cheap socks - Yay!

I couldn't resist keeping at least one though.  Do you have plans for one of your own?
