Sock monkeys are a classic and super adorable project. They are also simple to create and make great gifts. If you are making these as a gift for a young child remember to use child safe snaps instead of buttons, or no buttons at all (you could use a small piece of fabric or felt for the eyes). And once you've mastered the fine art of the sock monkey you can make slight variations on this pattern to create some little friends-like this cute raccoon!1. Supplies: two long thick socks, needle and thread, scissors, two black buttons, polyester plush. 2. Take both socks and sew arms, body, legs and ears. 3. The first sock will be the body. Once you've cut and sewn the legs, leave a small hole where you can fill it with plush. Once you've stuffed the body and legs, hand stitch the hole. 4. Next, take the other sock and cut and sew the arms, tail, and ears. 5. Once you've cut and sewn all the pieces, fill each piece with plush! 6. Sew the arms, tail and ears to the body. 7. Last, sew on the mouth by taking the heel of the second sock and hand stitching it onto the face. Once it's sewn half way, fill it with plush and sew the remaining side closed. 8. All done!For the raccoon you can make his tail a little bigger by making his ears smaller (using less fabric). It's fun to add little details too-like pipe cleaner glasses or plaid shorts! Have fun making your own little sock buddy creations.

oh noes but hehehehe 🙂 is there a way you can sglvaae this? For example snip a strand and then you’d have 2 half feet and pick up and finish the knitting on both of them? Or once you’ve separated them, fill with catnip and give to the kittenses? or use the 2 halves as part of convertible mittens?Hope the rest of the week will go better for you
The cap represents how adeictdd he is to the game; instead of a monkey on his back, it’s a monkey cap on his head…Hmmm that was funnier in my hEaD.I don’t know…you’re last ones were so good, I have AXED all of mine.

I wonder how long the kids will enjoy it? I might have to make it a monthly tradition LOL

Love the raccoon. My boyfriend collects sock monkeys, so I made him one a few years ago. They are so fun.
I’ve been wanting to make sock monkeys for ages! But I don’t know where to find the socks. Who carries them?
Those are some cool plush dudes.
Sock Monkeys are fanstastic, and this DIY is great! Love the raccoon!
I was given a sock monkey as part of a craft swap I entered in January! And it’s amazing and very much loved
too funny. but sock monkeys freak out my family!
This is just I iconic. In a kid way. Do please tell us where you found those socks! I wouldn’t Sar attempt this with my limited skills without that base:)
Awesome idea. Kind of confused on where you cut, though. Your instructions just say to sew the body, arms, and legs.
Good Idea for making wealth out of waste.
Eek! Sooo adorable!!
I am in love with that raccoon. He needs to be my crafting/blogging buddy.
