Although today hasn't gone to plan for me to craft all day, I have started my very first sock monkey!
The boys football wasn't cancelled as I had hoped; I'd forgotten all about going the the hygenist at 11 o'clock, until I got a reminder text from them very early this morning; we had to go into the local town this afternoon to get a few bits and pieces. I didn't therefore start making 'Dotty' until 5 o'clock this afternoon.
Here she is half completed, but in the morning I will be ready to sew on her limbs; make her face; and with any luck knit her a little scarf with the knitting needles I bought this morning, to have a go at a 'Mug Hug'.
I ended up getting the dotty socks in Poundland, and have so far sewed all her on the sewing machine. I though it would be quick and easy to make, but it is pretty time consuming with sewing all the bits; sorting out all the ends of cotton to tie so my hard work doesn't unravel itself; and stuffing all the bits.
Don't think she looks too bad, but think I will find giving her a mouth a bit more trickly. Still they do say that each sock monkey is unique and has their own character, and I am pretty sure that Dotty will be no exception!
Hopefully Sock Monkey Part 2 will be finished off tomorrow.
