Sock Monkey & Matching Card

Hope you're having a wonderful Tuesday. So glad that you took the time to stop by.
I just love Sock Monkeys. To me they are just the cutest thing. I even bought a pink one for my granddaughter for Christmas. I made it one of my New Year"s resolutions to make one myself. I searched the internet & found some great directions.  I printed them off, went to the nearest $Store to buy some socks, picked up a bag of stuffing & set to work. I'd say in about 3/4 of an hour I had made my first monkey.  (The first of many; both grandsons have put in their requests & my granddaughter & her friends would like one in every colour,lol).
Anyway, while I was making the Sock Monkey I thought a matching card would be cute so I came up with this paper pieced one. The background paper is kinda like a Where's the Sock Monkey" pattern. I know I purchased this Monkey paper at our local $ Store, but since it was in my leftover box I'm not sure which company made it. I used brads for the eyes & ultra fine tipped Sharpie markers to add the stitching details. A bit of twine on the top of his cap.
Both of these projects were fun to do & to me that's what crafting should be - FUN!

Again, thanks for stopping by.



Really cute, Ma! I think it is funny that you had sock monkey paper, lol. I think that Sass would like to put in her order, as well...she prefers a natural colour. xx
