I was making a sock monkey and it went wrong, so so wrong...

I'm not an arty crafty person, so I expected it to be a bit wrong, but this takes it to a whole other level of wrongness.

It's for my 10 yr old nephew's Christmas confused I thought I'd finished it last night (bar the eyes), until I picked it up and looked at it.

Like I said, I'm not good at this stuff, but my nephew had asked me to make it after I'd made one at a class, for his birthday in September - I didn't have time and bless him he never even asked what had happened to it, so I thought, I'll do it for Christmas.

So, um, behold... The worst sock monkey ever blush

That's a very well endowed monkey wink

Is that it's tail, or <ahem> something else confused?!

At least he looks (ahem) happy. grin

It was a tail - till I sewed his face on backwards blush

Oh dear lord grin

I'm sure there's a market for that kind of thing...

It's lovely <snigger>

That's made my night. It's like stuffed toy porn.

Can you amputate his head and reattach? <hopeful>

Oh this makes me very happy. Sorry OP.

Tee hee

He looks great actually-you just need to switch his head round, or his tail it's a bit hard to tell-so he has a lovely tail instead of a massive willy grin

It's, um, well.....

::falls over laughing:::

As you said, a whole new level of wrongness. But it is the thought that counts.

Thank you tabulah you have given me a fabulous laugh.

Other than the fact his tail is on backwards though he is a very good monkey I think. Is it salvageable? Could you do a John Wayne bobbit on him and then reattach his tail at the back. (I am soooo not crafty so maybe that's a really daft suggestion)

That is wonderful. Think it might a adult only monkey! grin

I'm fairly sure I can fix it, but it's made me laugh so much that I need to share it...I couldn't even be upset properly at having stuffed it up because it was just such a ridiculous result.

My friend has christened it the cock monkey, rofl

That is a really good monkey grin

KD0706 Fri 23-Dec-11 19:55:29

Yes you definitely needed to share that with us. Thanks. grin

Keep the photo, and you can send it to him in a Christmas card in about 8 years time. "Nephew, dearest, remember that sock monkey I made for you a few years ago...??" grin

I have actually laughed aloud and snorted wine out of my nose

natashakaplinkyplop Fri 23-Dec-11 19:56:31

Oh dear grin

I've got 3 of them to make next week.
If I do that, then it's all your fault! grin

BalloonSlayer Fri 23-Dec-11 19:59:09

God that's made my day!

I almost never actually LOL and have tears in my eyes over the internet.

Wheeze

Now that is what I will think of next time someone accuses another poster of being a sock puppet grin

OP I'm sorry but I'm actually laughing out loud grin
