I decided to give the sock monkey a go, you can find how to do it here.
I’m not completely happy with it, some of the seams look really bulky and crooked. It’s not hard to do but there is some technique to it and I have yet to master it. I’ve learned a few things though and I think I will do at least one more to see if I can get it right.
Next time I will use childrens socks for a smaller version.
