I made my brother sock monkey and he has named him Rumpus. I think that’s a brilliant name for a monkey, since it means a commotion or ruckus. This is our very first sock monkey and I think he turned out rather well; what he lacks in craftsmanship (my sewing really isn’t great) he makes up for in character. I did all the sewing and Phillip helped me turn things inside out and stuff things. This is the wonderful tutorial I used, and I just adapted the recipe a little.
