PROJECT: Sock Monkeys

I was never really into the original sock monkeys. They are cute and all, but I just did not really care. While doing some Christmas shopping, I saw a bunch of colorful and fun socks at Target. I picked up a few pairs not really having any definite plans with them, then headed home and looked at tutorials for sock animals. That's when I came across  A GREAT TUTORIAL (CLICK TO SEE TUTORIAL AND GET FREE PATTERN) and I knew that these sock monkeys would be a hit. We have enough dogs and bears. Not one monkey though.

Well, not until Christmas. Now we have 6!


My youngest 2 love spending time monkeying around with their new pets.  This was a project that was definitely worth staying up late for.
