My first tutorial, Hope it makes sense, note the change of socks I forgot to take pics of some stages lol.
A trio of monkeys.
Take a pair of unworn socks, turn inside out
Divide the sock in half put pins to mark this line to about 1/4 inch from heel
sew along ribbed edge and up one side of pins, repeat for other side. Remove pins and cut along this line to make legs.
Turn right way out and stuff firmly through "Crotch", Sew to close
With other sock cut out heel section, hem if necessary.This will form mouth
Stitch in position and stuff firmly, sew to close
Use leg part of 2nd sock to make arms and tail
Stuff and sew in place
Cut ear shape from matching felt and sew on to right side of sock Trim and turn inside out
Nearly there, position ears and sew on
Add buttons or felt eyes.
Voila your monkey is complete.
I don't get 6 -12 help please?
