    A lady made my daughter a sock monkey for her birthday about 10 years ago…I cannot believe the popularity of these things today. I am so glad we hung on to it!

    I want to make this costume. I bought the stuff but when I came back to the link it no longer shows the directions. If anyone has them please email them to me. \Thanks/

    I am also mid-way through making a sock monkey costume, and they seem to have removed the instructions. If anyone can locate them please email me at jemgotham@yahoo.com. I specifically need to know how to make the head, I have the upholstery foam, but I don’t recall what to do.
