I am in love with sock monkeys. Can you tell be where you found the pattern or how to make them. The paper you used for their bodies is perfect. Please tell me everything about how to make these.

I made the pattern for the body, head, arms, legs, tail and mouth on cardstock. I will look tomorrow and see if I can find them and try and make a document pattern to post this weekend. I used granite looking contact paper that looks similar to sock monkey fabric. They colored the center of the eye with a black marker and put a white reinforcer over that for the eyes. I cut the mouth and tips of the feet and hands out of white contact paper. Much less mess than glue. The mouth was made with a red permanent marker. The kids made their monkeys into a character of choice and designed them themselves out of costruction paper. The silver space suit monkey was made out of silver contact I bought at Lowes.
It would be easier for you to cut all of the body parts out and let the kids design their monkeys using those. I didn't let them attach anything until after they had arranged it on the paper and I checked them first. We started out with the larger monkeys but they took up so much room on the wall and I had 39 students and a small room, so I made a smaller version to use on 12"x18" paper as the background. They turned out really cute and we enjoyed looking at them throughout the year.
I'm attaching a picture with the space suit in it.
I hope this helps
