I handmade this wee cutie today. First ever attempt at a sock mokey, and i wanna make more now! Need to raid the shops.
 
He's a little more quirky than your traditional sock monkeys, with his little rosy cheeks, black buttons and tuft of mo-hawk hair

This piece was made out of a worn but VERY well washed pair of socks, lightly stuffed with poly fill, given cute wee safety eyes and added extras secured with fabric glue. The entire piece was hand sewn. 28cm from head to toe, with a 16cm tail.

As this was my first attempt it has a few flaws, that i'll be working out with newer attempts. Planning on making army off these wee guys in the near future, like i did with my "Snuggle monsters", i'll try to remember to update on here and not just Facebook this time!
