I am going to start on my new sock monkey today. All of these look really great and have given me lots of ideas on how to improve my craft.

thanks for the compliments, guys!  I really enjoyed making my sock monkey.  I love what everyone else has done so far too.  I really enjoy seeing everyone's individual take on things.

Is anyone here also participating in the Sock Monkey challenge?  I'm thinkin' about it... There aren't any "you must be a member for this long..." restrictions, are there?

That's just for swaps. Cheesy
I'm entering the challenge, and it's been a lot of fun doing research on my character for the entry.
Here's the first monkey I made:

Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl......

Here is my second sock monkey ever. This one I made all by hand since the kitten design was embroidered on causing the threads to get stuck in the sewing machine.

Is it hard to sew a monkey by hand?   I have a sewing machine but have no idea on how to use it...and have no blank surface to set it up for use at.   I'd LOVE to make a monkey for my aunt who is in the hospital after recieving her stem cell transplant today (for leukemia).   I think a sock monkey is quirky enough for her- she is not a teddy bear kinda gal.

I hand sew mine and they turn out just fine. I go round and invisible stitch the outside once they're stuffed to make them stronger and hide any obvious stitches.

sock monkeys are totally hand sewn friendly and aren't super time consuming either. I made the one I posted here all by hand because I didn't feel like dragging my sewing machine out of the closet. : )

I do the long seams with a machine, but end up doing a lot of hand sewing for the details. I love how the red heel socks hide seams so well.

FINALLY!  OK - long story short:  I sewed my first ever sock monkey from this cute pair of clearance Halloween socks.  That was 3 months ago.  I was stuck at the eyeball stage.  I simply couldn't find the right buttons for his peepers~ then I figured out why.  I was too close, too attached to him.  So, one trip to Joanns with my neighbor and she picked out just the right eyes!

I had to finish him, because I wanted so badly to make a monkey for Challenge #13 (vote here for my Bjork Monkey 'debut' : http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=99676.0).  

So - I give you my darling Spider Monkey



Thanks for motivating me to finish him!
