My First Sock Monkey

Okay, I really, really LOVE sock monkeys! I always have. So, I started looking on the Internet and you tube, and craft blogs finding video's on how to make them.
Of, course since I don't have a sewing machine that works right now, that was added stress on IF I could make one or not.

So, after reading through many sites, I realized I could hand sew one....even if my carpal tunnel killed me, I wanted to try.

It took some time, as the carpal tunnel did act up, and I had to stop and start more times that I wanted to, but....I made one. I have laughed over how it turned out so much that my sides are aching....I think it looks like a Cheshire had alot of fun making it.

Hope you enjoy my attempt! Blessings, Deborah
Looking okay so far

Can't  stop laughing!
