I've made my fair share of sock monkeys, but I've never made one for a
I like making my monkeys with button eyes, but because I wanted the baby's monkey to be soft and cuddly and safe, I opted for felt eyes instead.
I simply cut out some felt circles and stitched them to the monkey.
I also added eyelashes, because I'm fancy like that.
Even without the button eyes I think this monkey (who I lovingly referred to as Lavern while she was being made) has plenty of character.
I hope my friend's sweet baby is loving her sweet sock monkey!
