Tarzan Sock Monkey

18 Dec

Here’s the next sock monkey I made. I call him Tarzan…but really I think he’s dressed more like George of the Jungle.

IMG_0585I was asked to make a sock monkey for someone and they wanted something with animal print. I could have just made a scarf in animal print like I did for the two sock monkeys in the previous post…but where is the fun in that? Instead I decided that the sock monkey needed a loincloth of some sort made out of animal print cloth. So first I started by making the sock monkey.

IMG_0578Ok. Done. I had a package of three pairs of socks and somehow I managed to make two sock monkeys before realizing that the third pair of socks was different. This pair of socks does not have a different colour heel and toe! All that means is that the sock monkey’s muzzle will not be a different colour than the rest of its head, so I decided to go ahead and make a sock monkey out of these socks anyway.

IMG_0583So I made the sock monkey and made a simple animal print toga/loincloth outfit. I even cut a hole out of the back so that the tail could fit through.

IMG_0586Then I thought I was done. But I just couldn’t shake the feeling that something was missing. The sock monkey just needed a little something else, but I couldn’t think of what. Suddenly it came to me! Tarzan sock monkey needed a red bowtie!

IMG_0588Now we’re talking. Now It’s perfect. If perfect is Tarzan becoming a stripper. And in my books it is. That’s what Tarzan was missing! Bonus feature? That bowtie ties like an actual bowtie and isn’t just a clip on. It took skill. It wasn’t difficult to make, but it was difficult to tie. But in the end? Awesome.
