Sock Monkey Madness

I finally completed a project!! I had so much fun making this. He isn't anything fancy but I wanted something simple. I hate my tomato pin cushion and wanted to make a new one. I found some sock monkey material and HAD to use it. There is a story about my husband when he was a young boy strangling his sock monkey and saying, "Oh shit, oh shit, oh shit". So, it always makes me smile to see a sock monkey. Since my husband refused to wear anything made in this material, I thought about what I really wanted.... a new pin cushion. I traced out the pattern I wanted, attached buttons for eyes, sock for the mouth, ribbons for the legs/arms and sock for the ears. I took a before and after pic. Enjoy!

  1. I do the Martha Stewart trick of putting my pins in a metal case with a magnet stuck to the bottom. That little sock monkey is cute enough to make me change my ways.

    So when do we open our booth at Applegate?


What's on your mind??
