Instructions For How To Make A Sock Monkey Costume
Before I start the tutorial, here are a few disclaimers:
- this is the first time I’ve attempted to make something without a pattern, so bear with me. It’s not perfect!
- I used a serger for some of the steps, but you can easily do a zig zag stitch instead because I know most people don’t own sergers. (I’m sure I will be saying this over and over again.)
Your little sock monkey is ready to do some serious trick or treating now.
Or just look super cute.
