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

Feel free to laugh as much as you want, I have been, I can't look at him without giggling...

I made the first one at a craft class that I started going to when DC were younger, it's a put your children in a creche, go make crafts and drink coffee in adult company type thing, it's been a running joke that I'm bad at the craft part, spectacularly bad, but even I didn't think I could get it this wrong, lol

Think it's brilliant, very funny and made me laugh out loud. Save until nephew is 16 and he will too find hilarious (maybe 14?)

daft question but why are they called sock monkey's? Are they made from socks? confused

He'd be absolutely fine if he didn't have a tail like penis <snigger>

tabulahrasa Fri 23-Dec-11 20:12:15

Yes they're made from socks, new ones, well mine were...I suppose you could make one from an old pair hmm

Oh that is so funny. DH and I have not stopped laughing.

Unpick his face and put it on the right way and it will be lovely. It is made with loads of love and thats what counts.

The thing is his tail just looked like a tail, till I sewed his face onto the wrong side, once I did that, well... suddenly all the purple bits just looked obscene confused

Hehe. I can't even pretend to be grown up when looking at your photo, he's too funny!

On the plus side, he looks rather well sewn together.

It's the Dirk Diggler of Sock Monkeys

<seriously crying with laughter>

That's hilarious.

I teach English as a foreign language and this reminded me of the many many times I have tried to draw something on the board and it has come out looking like a penis. Normally when I try to illustrate a rocket/a bottle.

When my students just snigger, it's not so bad, it's when they look at me, utterly perplexed as to why I'm drawing a cock on the board.

Never mind the cock monkey...those cards are NEVER going to get there on time are they?!

tabulahrasa Fri 23-Dec-11 20:19:50

lol, the cards are for neighbours, I just need to send my small people round with them tomorrow

This reminds me of that primary school that had a class project to grow a cactus but it went a bit wrong
