    Default sock monkey inspired...

    well, in the recent thread about sock monkeys, someone posted a super cute chipmunk made of gloves.. well I thought it was so cute, I had to make some of my own

    thought I would share, I love them.. though my son could care less lol... He didn't like that I was cutting the gloves apart. When i asked him what animal I should make he told me to make gloves lol

    Thanks ladies It's really easy... you just cut off certain fingers of the gloves and use them for the arms, ears etc. You just pretty much play around with the ears and tails to make different animals.

    no!! really, you could do it! use the fluffy kind of gloves, they're more forgiving of sewing mistakes (cant even tell! they get lost in the fluff!

    the book that op posted, was where I got the ideas from. I cheated and saw them online lol... then went to get the book this afternoon!

    VERY easy!, really... since they're gloves, most of the work is already done for you!
    and go to the dollarstore for the gloves...worst that will happen is you mess up a pair and you're only out 1$... but really.. anyone who can half ass handsew can make one of these!!!
