I've developed a strange obsession with sock monkeys of late, so here is the first to be made from the pile of socks I've been collecting over the weeks! I thought that using new-born baby socks would make a tiny monkey, but it actually turned out bigger than I thought it would be! He's now sitting on my shelf waiting for some friends to arrive ;-)
I made this monkey using a updated version of an old pattern. This is something my nan used to do with my mum when she was a little girl, so we did this one together (mainly because I'm still learning to use a sewing machine) He was made for my nephew, but I love him soooo much he may not reach him.
