Sock money and a repainted case

Hey! I made some more things for the Harry Potter Craft-a-long ^_^

First up: I finally made a sock monkey! Yay! I think it turned out pretty well for my first attempt and now I totally want to make more ^_^

I don't know what to call it though; any ideas?

Next, this isn't really a proper craft, but when I first painted this case I used poster paint which was a terrible, terrible idea. Everytime I touched the case I ended up with black marks all over my hands and the paint just kept flaking off the bamboo handle. So uncool. So I covered up the illustration with paper and painter's tape and then spray-painted the whole thing in metallic charcoal.

I think it turned out pretty well, although there are a few places where the texture is a little weird.

And the picture still looks good. Apart from the smudges which were made by the poster paint from when I first attached it. *waves fist in air* Damn you poster paint!
I can't wait for the weekend - I have more finished projects to show you! Have a great rest of the week! ^_^
