The tutorial for the sock monkey was awesome! I loved making them because I could stop the video and sew along.Because of your instructions being so GREEAT I was able to make a sock monkey! Thank you so much!
Thank you for your lovely comment Sharon!
Do you have a template for the eyes and mouth that you drew onto the felt? I am no artist and I would rather not struggle with that. Also, I found your video on You Tube because I am making a classic sock monkey with a red-heel sock. I was looking for some guidance on making the mouth because it appears to be a challenge and I don’t want to mess it up.
Thanks for your excellent video and any help you can give me.
The template for the eyes and mouth is at the bottom of the downloadable PDF for this project. You should be able to see a blue button that says ‘Download the Project PDF here’. Let me know if you can’t find it.
With the classic red heeled sock monkeys it looks like the mouth is created with the heel of the sock instead of the mouth. In this case I would follow the same instructions that I created but cut the mouth from the heel of the sock instead of the toe of the sock and skip sewing on the white felt piece for behind the eyes and mouth. Hopefully that helps. 🙂
I would love to see a photo of your sock monkey when it is done!
