I still have a bit of a way to go but i thought i'd show you my progress so far. Below are the socks ready to be monkeyfied.
They are easy peasy to make and i think they look brilliant when finished. Firstly you turn one of the socks inside out and cut it from ankle to heel. This this then sewn leaving a little hole to turn it the right way again. This is your sock monkey body.
This is where i have gotten to so far. I will of course let you know how i get on finishing them and give you the rest of the instructiuons should you wish to make your own sock monkey (although i'm guessing you can probably work it out from here, you clever sticks).
