Red Heel Sock Monkey Pattern

Picture of Sock Monkey Pattern - Tipnut.comI happened across an original copy from Nelson Rockford (including a like-new pair of socks attached, yay!). Who says there’s nothing but junk to be found at garage sales, hehe.
I made a copy to store on Tipnut, the full pattern is a single pdf file so you can download and save it for yourself if you like. The two page scan includes instructions for how to make a red heel sock monkey as well as the sock elephant doll.

pouch diary
The new job is going well, to celebrate I made myself a document pouch and cover for my diary. now I really had more creative plans for this but I wanted to test out the theory first then maybe I’ll branch out into more intricate lines.
R’s Toe warmer is not going well, I’ve hardly touched it all week! I’ve had some very lazy evenings just reading trash novels to empty my brain of the days information.
5 quick things I love
  1.  The fact R. is taking me to The press club for my birthday on Monday.
  2. Getting Thank You emails form my bosses instead of abuse.
  3. Inside a black apple part of me has to have the black apple action figure.
  4. This little pendant
  5. The fact that my office is secretly sneakily trying to organise drinks tomorrow to welcome me without me realising.
That’s all folks. Hope you like the pattern and have a great weekend!

Stripe-y Patchwork Cat

Well, here it goes, my first pattern — and it's free! It is completely untested and hasn't been edited, so any feedback would be great. I'm thinking of it as a group work-in-progress.
Thanks to Lisa for combining my pdfs into one neat download.
