If you had a sock monkey costume as a kid then this costume is going to hit home for you. It’s designed to look identical to the original sock monkey by matching fabric and style. This costume looks great and definitely brings back some old memories for both adults and children!
A message from Missy, the creator of the ‘DIY Sock Monkey’ kids costume:
I made the sock monkey costume using a pair of footie pajamas as a template and then made a simple little hat with ears and yarn on the top. I made the costume a little roomy in case it needed to go on over a winter coat (which it did) and she wore her winter boots, some socks I cut off to make leg warmers, and her mittens.
She even had a cute little trick-or-treat bag I made with some left over sock monkey fabric.
My favorite part about the costume was that it was quick and easy to get on and off, and Josie was able to run, play, and easily go trick-or-treating (and stay warm) while wearing it.
