I made my first sock monkey a couple weeks ago, and modeled him after Jemaine Clement from Flight of the Conchords. The red heel sock monkey making instructions were hilariously 70s (instructions like cut ear shapes for ears), but I managed to make one that looks basically like a sock monkey! I definitely love that he looks like Jemaine.



His body is a little wonky, but I love his face and hair. The hair took about three hours! I sent this guy to his new home in the UK for the FOTC swap.

From one sock monkey maker to another - he's fantastic!  The hair is great and he does look like Jemaine Clement...although I have to admit that I didn't know who Jemaine Clement was until I looked him up on Google.

You did a smashing job!
