A couple of weeks ago the facilitator put out a call for a sock monkey exchange (http://6degreesofcreativity.wordpress.com/2013/11/15/calling-sock-monkey-makers/) and I jumped in on being a part of this project. Partially because as a kid sock monkeys scared me because they looked like this:
Which reminded me for some reason of the bad monkeys from Wizard of Oz. I've seen cuter ones these days and wanted to challenge myself in trying to make one. I also liked the idea of sending it to someone and not having any idea of the one that you will receive in return. I searched online and found a good sock monkey tutorial blog that I used for most of it but the decorating portion was all me. Do you recognize where the tutu tule came from?
Here's pics of my sock monkey. It's being sent to a woman in NJ. I will update with pics of the monkey I receive.
Update: Below are some pictures of the sock monkey I received in the global trade. Mine came from Natalie Coriell from Maplewood, MO. Thank you Natalie!
