    We "needed" a Princess Monkey Doll. Here she is!
    She will be loved..........

    My friend bought these socks in Michaels, here's what they look like in Monkey Doll-ese.

    My Dad loves quotes - he pass this love on to me. I made this quilt years ago - always a work in progress - I put Butterflywing's saying on it "if you can't fly as high as you'd like, fly as high as you can." and still would like to add Barnbum's
    saying "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain" Then I'll give it to my Dad.

    Yup! They're back! If you're lucky enough to have knee-hi
    socks (remember them?)- they make the very best monkey dolls!

    You have joined a Sock Monkey club. I am queen or at least princess. I have sewn over 200 sock monkeys in 30 years. Each baby in the family, or for friends then for Church for the homeless children that come through for a weeks stay.

    They are such happy projects! It is hard not to smile when sewing a sock monkey.

    I have not seen the fancy socks in Michaels. Have not been in a Michaels for years. Fun fun fun !

    You're right, Chairjogger - it's hard not to smile when you're making a sockmonkey doll or any sock doll. I had made about 30 of them for our church fair about 40 years ago. Then I made them for my kids. My son still has his, and then his daughter and now his other daughter - so that the three of them can play with their dolls together. My Homemaker's group has made them, and so have my quilting friends. Sock Monkey is a happy project!!! I think the best part is that they don't have to be new socks, nor do they have to match. The funkier the better!
