I did it. Yesterday. It took me a while because of the handsewing that had to be done, but I did it. Finished. Fini. Complete-o. (That’s not a cool “finished” word in another language…unless you count my personal language.)
I said I would post about little “bumps in the road” I found in my sock monkey adventure as I sewed…but I didn’t really find any. Of course, if you try it out and have problems, comment! I’ll gladly help you fix the problem. 🙂
But aside from a few things, I was okay. There were some pretty minor ones; but I just figured them out on my own pretty quickly…
- The head. The instructions don’t actually tell you exactly how to do the head…so I basically stuffed the whole thing, then about 1 1/2 – 2 in. from the top of the potential head (the toe of the sock), I just squished it and moved the batting around until I could take an extra-strong thread and wrap it around enough times to make a neck. It was if I just took the top part and twisted and twisted it, until it was all scrunched in.
- The legs and arms. For the rounded-ness at the end of the legs and arms, I just took a spool of thread and traced it partway around to form a rounded end…then when I sewed it, I just followed the pencil mark.
If there’s anything else you don’t really get, you can comment and I’ll reply. 🙂
