FO Friday - Sock Monkeys!
I followed an excellent photo tutorial from web-goddess.org which you can find here, and just decided to have a go. The first one I made, the pink one, I really didn't think through at all. Not only are the hearts on the body (which are hard to see in this picture) the wrong way up, but I managed to sew the sock for the body and legs right sides together, so it's inside out. But i did realise what I'd done, so the arms and tail are the right way up and right way in. The second worked much better, as rainbows would look silly upside down, so I used the same tutorial, but sewed up the top of the sock for the monkey's head and then used the toe for the monkey's foot. I also had to substitute for the mouth, using a toe instead of the heel, as the socks I used had holes in them.
I think they're really cute and I'm pretty proud of them. I also have lots more holey socks, so watch this space for more of the same!
