Here's my first attempt at a sock monkey.  I made it for one of my son's teachers, who just recently had a baby. It was a lot of fun to make, and I might have to try making some other sock creatures.  I used the instructions in the good 'ole Pack-o-Fun "How To Make Sock Toys" book by Edna Clapper.  Maybe the elephant will be my next project.

Here's a link to the book:  http://www.amazon.com/Make-Sock-Toys-Pack-o-Fun-Books/dp/B0007EXHZE/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1346779684&sr=1-1&keywords=how+to+make+sock+toys

Thanks for looking!

You've given him a wonderfully friendly face and he looks so laid back. I'd want him for my first friend.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
