What are you most proud of? each creation has it's own personality. That, and it drives my kids, now 21 and 19, insane that their mother is now the "sock monkey lady"!! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time, enjoy, and don't stress if it isn't perfect. That's what gives your monkey it's personality. I would also advise that if these are for small children, double stitch the arms, tail and ears on, and you may want to stitch eyes made out of felt instead of buttons.
