Do you remember Sock Monkeys from the 60's?
My aunts and grandmother thought is was the funnest thing to take a good pair of socks and make a monkey out of it.
Well fast forward a few years and they're back. and going strong.
Why all the fuss? -- One of the Doctors I work with is having her first baby (it's a boy) and she's decorating the nursery in -- you guessed it sock monkeys. ;o}
So I went out and did a google to look for a kit and found one @ sockmonkey.net
I think it turned out OK for my first and probably my only sock monkey. :o}
Then I found the monkey fabric -- and I think I went over board and bought too much because I had a hard time deciding what to do with all of it. I think I decided on 4 different patterns before I came up with this...
I made two blocks -- a nine patch and a snowball.
I hope she likes it.....
Hope you have a great day. :o}
