Sock Monkeys...

These guys and a few more to come are going to the shop. This is the first time I've made sock monkeys and they are pretty fun! The stripey one I made out of one pair shorty socks and one pair toe socks...stitched together to make the shorty socks long enough for monkey legs.
I made a little taggie blanket to go with the brown monkey...look at that cute sock monkey fabric. I'm planning to make four more of these monkeys. They are for a little room that I want to stock with baby and kids stuff...handmade and vintage. A young mother I know is making some baby blankets too.

I made my first sock monkey at the request of a friend a couple of weeks ago. It was a blast. I thought it would be a lot harder but it actually turned out to be fairly easy and fun.

They are so cute! Great job. It's funny, but my daughter just dug out my two sock monkeys and has been giving them lots of love the last week. Everyone has to have a sock monkey!
