My Own Sock Monkey

As you all might know I love the sock monkey.  Not sure what it is about it, but I love it!!  I am so very EXCITED because my super fabulous mom made me my very own sock monkey!! Doesn't it look fabulous!! I am excited to have him sit on my craft room and watch me craft!  Keeps me company when King is out of town!  LOL  My mom said it took her over an HOUR! to put one of these together and she is a very avid and almost professional sewer, been sewing since she was wee tiny.  Therefore, if you want to make one, you might want to have a little time.  Just thought I would let you all know.  Sorry, I am not even sure if she used a pattern or not . . . but here is a site that has a pattern.  I found the actually sock monkey "socks" at WalMart, only saw them like once, not sure why they had them but I bought a few pair!

 How You Like Me Now!
