Not Your Average Sock Monkey

Sock Monkeys are special little gifts to the little girls in our family.  I usually give them around the first or second birthdays.  And now I wish I had pictures because they turned out pretty cute.  My sister gave me a book called Stray Sock Sewing by Daniel (just his first name...kind of like Cher or Moby).  The author turned his love of creativity into a business by making sock creatures, teaching classes and writing a book.  Here are some views from the book:


The author has a whole section on how to make the socks creatures, what type of socks to use and different tecniques to shape the bodies.  The pigs are my favorite.

I hope you all are having a great weekend!
