Sock Monkey!


Isn't he adorable?  I just treasure this little guy.  Of course, I made him for a swap with my friends at 14secrets.  We have so much fun together.  I thought I wasn't going to make the deadline.  Then we got hit with so much snow I decided to take a play day and I whipped him up.  Everyone said they were fun to make.  At first I didn't believe it.  But trying it, I realized yes!  Hilarious.  Such fun.  I can't keep a straight face when I look at the little guy.  
My husband and children were also immediately charmed!  I wondered what I could do to personalize him a little.  Some of the artists made tons of these, they are all cuter that the previous ones.  Very moving these little cousins of Curious George.  And I thought and thought... and came up with giving him a little French touch.  If you have a little gift to give, why not find some socks and go to work on transforming them into one of these.  These little treasures are filled with possibilities!  Et le voilà, François!  He did me the honors of standing up for his photo.  Immediately after I clicked the shutter, he toppled over.  So a big round of applause please for his efforts.

I can just hear that deep throated French chuckle! He is très jolie!I think sock monkeys are more fun to make ... well ... than a barrel of monkeys.
