On Wednesday I went along to Eden Valley Hospice to do a demo, using odd socks as it was National Odd Sock Day.
Now, I have made plenty of sock monkeys in my time, but they take a pair of socks, and this demo was specifically for odd socks - or in my case, single socks, as I did have pairs ;)
I was given a whole bunch of fluffy odd socks a little while ago and these were absolutely perfect for this craft.
I decided to make monsters. Easy to do, a quick run on the sewing machine to make the shape, then stuff and sew before adding eyes and a beak. (I will do a proper tutorial on them soon, promise)
I made a couple of sample fellows to take with me...
Then added a few friends, as I thought after the demonstration they could be sold for charity.
The demo ended up being a workshop, with everyone wanting to make their own monster :) Buttons, felt and stuffing galore as we stuffed and sewed up odd socks.
And what a colourful bunch of sock monster were produced. Along with a sock monkey to keep an eye on them :)
