Pink Minky


This is what i did while my boyfriend went to the Nine inch nails concert. Rock on! Actually i dont think i moved from the sofa the whole time he was gone. Seems to be less of a hobby and more of an obsession at the moment but i cant bear to leave things unfinished. Anyway i did leave this spotty monky without his ears for an evening so i must have a little self discipline.

So this is my first attempt at a sock monkey and as they are all over the internet i thought i would join the fun. Quite pleased with the result but discovered that i am really crap at embroidery so his mouth came out a little freaky - obviously something to work on. I bought a set of three little girls socks so he has two friends to follow but as that will be God knows when i thought i would post this one now.

I love this guy! That fabric is perfect for him.

And embroidery has a definite learning curve, you'll get better if you keep it up. Myself, I've gone from 'complete crap' to 'not totally embarrassed to show it to other human beings'.
