How to Make Your Own Sock Monkeys

Since Daddys pet name for our girls has always been Monkey we decided our theme for M2's 1st Birthday was going to be Monkeys!! I have been searching around for sock monkeys online hoping to purchase a few but they are expensive!! Since I am always feeling kinda thrifty I found this great tutorial on Craft Passion for How to Make Sock Monkeys!

Sunday after church I started working on them! (Thanks Daddy for working outside with the girls for a few hours!)
I finished them later than night took about 3-4 hours total! Not bad about an hour per monkey!

Here is a list of supplies

1 pair tall socks (stripes is easy because it is easy to match up the stripes)
Batting or Stuffing
Small piece of felt
Embroidery Floss

Sewing Machine

M2 was definitley interested in what those Monkeys were!

M1 wanted her picture taken with them!

Anyone have any really great Monkey Party Ideas for Me??


  1. These are adorable! I wish I had a sewing machine!

  2. These are amazing! Pinning now to remember....when I get brave enough to sew. (I'm so ashamed I don't have that skill!)

  3. Those monkeys are super adorable! Super creative. Love the colors! Saw your post on Tuesday Tots! :)
