Soccer Sock Monkey!

Isn’t she a sweet little monkey? Another soccer sock monkey headed to an adorable little soccer player.

The jersey and shorts are sure to match her human friends exactly because her thoughtful mom sent me a jersey to make the monkeys outfit.

Smart thinking Mom! :)

Todays Sock Monkey brought to you by the color Green

I can’t seem to pose these little guys any other way. They just look so natural with that smug little expression and their arms crossed. :)

These sock monkeys really do have an attitude about them.

Maybe I’ll come up with another pose someday though.

Pink with Attitude! – Girl Outdoor Sock Monkey

I was so happy to get this request. I think I will add this as an option on the site.

I really do need a few more girly options for sock monkeys. I love eyelashes! :)

Two Classic Sock Monkeys for the Road- To OZ! :)

These two cuties are headed to the land down under. I love it when good ole’ folk art gets exported.
Who says America has no culture! ;) Sorry, I guess I might be a bit touchy about that. I was recently in South America hanging out with a nice German guy who did not hold back his opinions of Americas lack of taste and culture.

Back to Sock Monkeys- I’ve been asked how I make the slightly folded ears for the classic sock monkey.
I draw the shape. (for classic is about 80% of a full circle)
Sew it. (for pre-sewn sock monkey kits this shape is already sewn in)
Turn it right side out.
Bring the two ‘corners’ together and make a small sorta cone shape and sew that to the sock monkeys head.
Happy Monkey Making!
