inspired by the Stupid Sock Creatures book i bought a couple years ago, i pulled out the ol’ sock box yesterday and selected a few of the previously worn socks i’d stashed in there.
as some of you know, i was a sock monkey maker for a number of years, and i still have a sock stash in my craft room. i occasionally make monkeys now and again, but wanted to try something a little different this time around. just making monkeys gets kind of boring after awhile.
i followed some of the advice and directions from the book, and did a few things my own way, making it up as i went along.
i couldn’t help myself – i had to add a tail. once a monkey maker, always a monkey maker.
all stuffed and ready for some needle-sculpting.
