Why the Long Face?: SOCK DONKEY!!!!

<excitement> I HAVE WORKING INTERNET AGAIN! </excitement>

Sometimes I see a tutorial and bookmark it for later and other times I have to do the project RIGHT. THIS. SECOND.  About one hour after reading Erin @ Missy Mac Creations tutorial for a Sock Donkey, I was at Target in the sock section. LOOK AT THAT LONG FACE! I love it!

There were a lot of interesting socks in the clearance bin, but I decided to go with the leopard print. I used the right side of the sock for most of his parts, but the hairy, scraggly side of the sock for his mane. It took me a few times to get the head on the way I wanted, so I think the head is pretty secure. I sewed around it three times!

Leopkey? Donkard?
My husband was really confused about what I was doing, but he decided to just accept it and move on.

Mr. Sock Donkey is currently living with my sister. She has an outdated love of sock monkeys and I didn't want her to be off-trend. ;) ( I gave her naming rights, so I will have to ask her what she named him!)

My only regret is not taking more pictures. I decided to take pictures right when we were racing out the door to deliver him to his new home.


Head over to Missy Mac Creations to see other donktacular creations. You have until November 16 to submit your own Donktober project. There are many donktabulous prizes!

I did the same thing, I saw the tutorial and was like I have to make that. I just ran to the back room looking for some old socks, No Target in Greece, so sad.
