Just wanted to share SOMETHING after looking at all the cool stuff everyone else has created.  I made this last year for my friend's baby.  Her husband is in the band on the tee and do-rag (yes, it is very crooked).

Has anyone sewn a sock monkey with a sewing machine?  I did this one all by hand and it took forever.  Was thinking about trying to whip up a few more with my machine but wasn't sure if there was any reason why it wouldn't work out as well.

Thanks!

I heart sockmonkeys in a major way. Yours is really, really cool. I sewed one by machine one time, and I have to say that I liked the charm of the handmade one much better. I like your monkey!

Ohh!! That is great!  I was thinking about trying to sew up some funky ones and sell them.  I've seen some on ebay.  I would never attempt to do it all by hand - took me forever.

If you buy a sock monkey "kit" they include instructions that I thought were pretty clear at the time.  I'll try to see if I still have them. Maybe I can scan them and post them in here as well.  I think most craft stores have the kits.  I got mine as a gift.

Cool monkey, man. I used to hate sock monkeys. Then my niece gave me one. Before, I used to see them at Goodiwill and SalArm all the time, now...not a one.

I used a stretch stitch setting on my machine and it worked really well.  You can hardly tell where any of the seams are!  I did hand sew the ears though, because they were itty bitty on mine (I didn't use the rockford socks).

I *heart* Sock Monkeys too!  Those are both adorable.  I usually sew the pieces on the machine and then stuff it and join it all together by hand, if that makes any sense.

I could be wrong, but I'm almost positive that the Rockford socks come with instructions for Sock Monkeys.  And if you have a Cracker Barrel near you, they have the socks that I know for sure come with directions.
