A friend has recently had a baby girl so I thought I’d try my hand at making her a sock monkey. They’re soft and cuddly characters, and those long skinny limbs and tail are perfect for tiny hands to grasp.
Do you like how Polly turned out?
It’s so satisfying seeing a few pieces of fabric gradually turning into a creature, albeit inanimate, in one’s hands. The very best part is the final touch - stitching the cheeky grin!!!
And if you think you’ve detected the beginnings of an obsession you may be right!
