My first sock monkey

I made this monkey last night. I am pretty pleased with him as a first attempt. As you can see in the pic my girls like him. Have to do another now so they have one each.

Another bag

Just finished this bag this evening. Think I am getting better but not sure if they are good enough to give as gifts yet. Think I need some more practice. I now have 12 more Christmas stockings to make before the beginning of December plus possible requests from neighbours. Really struggling to work out costing though. Would like to know how much they are costing me to make but as I never buy enough of anything and have to keep going back to the shop to get more its so hard to work out. Anyone have any tips.

Internal flex frame stress

A friend has asked me to make her a glasses case and i really want to make her one with a flex frame but can i find one for less than £5 delivered. Not a chance. To me £5 seems a lot of money for one of these.If anyone knows where i can get one it will be much appreciated.
If i cant find one i'll have to have a rethink about how i'm going to make it.
Anyway on a lighter note its my twin girls 3rd birthday tomorrow.I have attempted a chocolate house cake today which i am not very happy with but i'm sure it will taste lovely. Looking forward to lots of fun and party food tomorrow.
