Monkey See, Monkey do

Caitlin came to spend the day and night.  See, she's been looking everywhere for a real sock monkey.  They've come back in style.  The ones you buy in stores now, are not made out of socks.  They're made out of fabric and are not really what she wanted.   So about a month ago, when we were on Skype, we discussed making her a real sock monkey.  I said I would find some sock monkey socks in the USA and bring them back with me.  I found the socks at Fabric.com. 

So Caitlin and I would like to introduce you to Mike...  Mike the Sock Monkey.   Here are some pictures.

I love Sock Monkey's and am delighted they are back in style. I have some of the original socks, from many years ago. Wonder where I put them???? Guess I better start cleaning out my sewing room and find them! :-)

I've made a few sock monkeys in the past years for little ones. I really enjoy making them. And the kids seem to like them as much as their parents do!
