Monster Madness! How to make Monster Pants!

As you know, I love to crochet :)
I have found a new pattern that I can "play" with! It was written by Heather Richard, and it is called 'My Simple Crochet Longies/Shorties'. You can find it on Ravelry. It is for sale, but is very afordable at $3.00! It has short rows in the bum area that can be crocheted in a different color. That is the mouth of the Monster! Easy! I added eyes later by crocheting a few circles and stitching them on after the pants were completed.

I've wanted sock monkey pants for Reese for a long time, now I have them! I've seen these suckers sell for $50.00!

These are the first pair I made for him, and are my favorite!

I love the way these turned out! Only thing is I made them a tad bit tight! They are still super cute on :) I also added snaps to the straps, and they work really well.
Let me know what you think!


  1. I just love how you come up with all these cute things, with the faces on the butt! :)
    I wear my hat all the time, I really need to get a pic of me in it before it gets packed away!!
    The girls don't wear their hats too much yet, they're a little big, but next winter I'm sure they'll fit better. We will hang on to them forever!
    You inspire me! Love you!!

  2. I love these, I think I will buy the pattern and try the sock monkey pants for my new grandson.

    1. It really is easy to make the faces on the butt with this pattern :)
