Sock Monkey vs. Wool Socks
Wool socks are just irritating. They're itchy and too hot for Texas weather... but they work rather well for
making a sock monkey
We found the pattern on line and marked out where we wanted to cut. Since it wasn't the traditional colored heels and toes, we had to eyeball some of the measurements.
We ended up with a different, argyle style monkey.
Then we stuffed him...
and sewed his arms, mouth and tail on.
His ears and eyes came next.
Our silly monkey ended up with arms as long as his legs, for a top heavy look... but that's OK, because Talia thinks he's cute with his arms crossed:
