Pinterest Solution #1:
The type of stuffing you use can make a difference with your sock creations. If it's too clumpy and stiff it isn't going to stuff nicely. I like to use Cluster Stuff. It isn't all one big pillow of stuffing that you have to rip apart, but rather a bunch of small soft little balls of fluff. It makes a much nicer stuffing medium, especially for stuffed animals.
How tight you pack in your stuffing makes a big difference too. You don't need to stuff you sock so tight with stuffing that you could use it to beat off burglars (although that would be quite the story for them in the slammer..."Yeah, he beat me with a sock monkey."). Just stuff until it's full, but not bursting at the seams.
So, the sock monkey didn't turn out so monkey-ish, what about doing something more like this cute little sock bunny instead?

Well...they may not be as cuddly and cute as Jordan and Hannah imagined at first, but they made me smile! I want to make one now to put in my car like Jordan did, bahahaha. I'm still laughing about that.
