Lets make a sock monkey!

Funky Sock Monkeys is a super fun sock place where sock monkey doll patterns can be used to bring your socks alive! Not really alive but at least pretty cool looking.

Find out what a sock monkey actually is, if you don't already know and how you can create your very own sock animals and creatures.

If you are feeling crafty you can easily learn how to make a stuffed sock pal. No experience is needed, just give it a go! 

Happy little accidents are welcome and all wonky, whacky, crazy outcomes are perfect. You can do this even if you've never sewn anything before. 

You'll find the free sock monkey doll patterns and instructions are easy to follow and in no time at all you'll have your very own lovable sock monkey dolls.

If you have a sewing machine at hand that will speed up the process, but it is not necessary as you can fully make a sock monkey or sock creature with a needle and thread and do the entire thing by hand.

You can also make different sock animals not just sock monkeys. We also have fun craft ideas and lots of other groovy monkey and sock stuff to look at.

You can find socks to add to your sock collection, either to wear or to make into some crazy sock creatures. 

There are so many styles and colors to choose from purple, blue, pink, striped, animal prints, the list just goes on and on and on and on.......... That is great news for those of us who love socks, whether we are going to be wearing them or transforming them into a lovable, hug-able creatures.

Funky-sock-monkeys is all about sharing ideas and having some fun easy craft projects to provide some inspiration on different ways you can add cuddly, soft monkeys and other sock toys into your family. If you are new to making sock monkeys well a word of warning, it can be additive, seriously, but boy is it fun!

Many unique animals can be made by adjusting the basic sock monkey doll patterns and the sock elephant pattern, such as cats, dogs, cows, bears, zebras, giraffes, reindeer, aardvarks. Aardvarks? Yes, well the first elephant that I ever made looks more like an aardvark. It was a rough day!

If you are wanting a classic looking sock animal, you'll be needing Original Rockford Red Heel socks, otherwise you can use whatever socks you like.

I personally love trying out different patterned socks, the results are so varied and it's fun to see what personality the sock monkey dolls come out with. 

On our "socks" page you'll find a bunch of links that will send you off to find some suitable socks to create with. Don't underestimate the not so fancy socks you might see as it's quite amazing what pair of socks can transform into with a little cutting and stitching.

It's definitely worth looking at the bright and animal printed ones too, those ones do look quite spectacular once stuffed and given some character.

You can buy all sorts of monkey themed stuff nowadays too, art, cards, fabric, books, clothes, slippers, pajamas, hats, bedding, pictures, dog toys, that is another list that goes on and on.

But, all you need to get started to make a sock monkey is:

One pair of socks, a pattern, a needle and some thread.

If you are lucky enough to have a sewing machine that is great, but remember it is not essential.

You can grab a free pattern from here at funky-sock-monkeys or order yourself a pattern book. There are two pattern books choose from.

1) The "Original Red Heel" pattern book.

2) The updated version pattern book.

Both are filled with heaps of patterns (over 50 in fact) for making different sock toys. The updated pattern book has color photographs of completed sock dolls.

Here on this site on the pattern pages you can download immediately either the modern sock monkey pattern or the vintage sock monkey pattern in pdf format. These are the original patterns that you can alter to make any sock animal you'd like.

There is a bunch of monkey pages for you to look at and see how particular monkeys were crafted. There is really no limit to what can be altered and changed to suit the look you want your sock animal to have. 

If we ever make a boo while crafting, great, bring it on, any "mistakes" just make a more unique and fun character.
