Turn a pair of dollar store socks into a stylish, updated version of the traditional sock monkey. These toys are adorable and are not cheap in kiddie boutiques, but I will show you how easy it is to make one quickly and inexpensively!
I would say this is a beginner project that you can complete in about two hours.
Step 1: Gather your supplies
I got this 3 pack of socks for $2.50 and had some stuffing left from another project. The polka dots were really talking to me. The cats & fishbones...not so much.
I also used some embroidery floss (but regular thread would work too) and you'll need scissors, a couple of buttons or pieces of felt for eyes & nose and a knitting needle or some other long pokey thing for stuffing the limbs. I used a sewing machine as well, but you could definitely do this by hand and it wouldn't take too outrageously long.
