A RIGHT BUNCH OF MONKEYS

 Pick a pair of socks
 Turn them inside out
 Add some stitching, do some cutting and a lot of concentrating.
Have a cuppa then start stuffing
and what do you get
This little fella.  Well he's not that little actually.

A great big thank you to Rebecca and Andrea of 
for coming to our craft group and showing how to make them.

  5. What an interesting way to use old socks, haha. Not my cup of tea, but I bet you all had lots of fun. I can imagine as much time was spent chattering like monkeys as was spent making some, hehe :0) Mo x
