Fun sock animal sewing patterns

Great collection of all sorts of sock animals to sew.  The sock monkey of course, but lots of other patterns too for other animals.

Having designed simple clothing patterns myself, I have the greatest admiration for those who create patterns for 3d items such as soft toys and dolls. Visualizing how something flat such as fabric or a paper pattern, can be turned into something 3 dimensional is a skill indeed.

That's why I love sock monkeys and all the other sock toys you see. I just can't get my head around how a simple pair of socks can be turned into something so awesome.  How they can take all those funny shaped parts of a sock such as the toe and the heel and use them to create faces, bodies and fun personalities.

I've been collecting some sock toy ideas for a while now, but without a sock shop here, (no one wears socks, it's too hot), they'll just sit here on my computer unused unless I get them out there.

So enjoy this round up of some sock monkeys and other ingenious sock animal sewing patterns that I've put together.  There's everything from the traditional sock monkey, to the more exotic penguins, a lion, cats and dogs, a snake and even a sock dragon!

Oh my goodness they are soooo cute.

How hard are they do you think?

I’m the same way! I just love experimenting with socks of all types, infant socks, childrens socks and adult socks to make a variety of sock animals. Come see mine some time. I’d love to know what you think! 🙂

That little hedgehog and I are destined to be best buds but I can’t figure out how to get to it. Please let me know how to get to know where he’s hiding.

Deby, I love all of these sock animals! I think you’re right , it does take a talent to design and make something 3-D like these. I’ve never made anything like them, but it gives me inspiration to try some for the grandkids!
