Meet my latest sock monkey.
Aptly, and rather embarrassingly, named "Mummy loves you" because quite frankly it took so long to make, Mummy certainly must love you to make one of these!
As you may have realised, with all of the quick and simple crafts on this blog, I am a big fan of a craft that can be completed in under an hour! That way you have something to show for your efforts, you've had your craft fix, accomplished something and can move on to the more exciting tasks of folding the washing, but I just couldn't resist these little cuties.
The feeling of accomplishment having completed a slightly bigger than normal craft is definitely worth it! If you'd like to give one a go - it's made from a pair of socks, 2 buttons and some thread (seriously!) - check out this very well written tutorial.
Linking in today with the new home of our creative spaces over here.
Back to that pile of washing... or should I say mountain... I'd much prefer to be making monkeys from my socks rather than folding them.... problem is you need a matching pair and they are few and far between in this house!
What creative pursuits have you been up to lately?
Do you prefer the quick and easy craft or the slow and satisfying?
