Cool! So you stuff the head then sew the neck onto it?

Yep Smiley  Super easy!

He is awesome and when my daughter saw the picture she had a fit. I would love to try and make one of these for her for Christmas. I am confused about how you made his neck so small and still get his head stuffed. I'm sure mine won't turn out this good but I'd like to give it a shot. Can you tell me about the neck? If it's a secret, I understand  Grin

No big secret!  Its just a piece of sock sewn around a wire and into the head Smiley

Thank you! Smiley

So I recently did my very first swap!  I was a part of the Sock Monkey/Critter swap.  After reading my partners questionnaire (... and her profile, lol) I decided a standard monkey wasn't quite what I wanted to do.

And Jack Skellington was born!





Jack is made of two tube socks and is about 18" tall.  He's fully pose able since his body is fully wired.

I ran into a few snags along the way... like making him look skinny and ethereal.  Kinda tough with a sock but I think he came out rather well!

Hope everyone likes him as much I as liked making him Smiley

Well, mine was to be sent out yesterday but I ended up in the hospital... lotsa unpleasant feelings and my family doc sent me to the er since he was CONVINCED I had food poisoning.

He was wrong!  Turns out I'm pregnant (yay! Hubby and I have been trying for a while and kinda gave up on it happening) so after this day of celebrating, I'll be mailing!

Im very excited to hear what my partner thinks of mine.  Especially since my neighbors already tried to steal it Wink

So I'm finally uploading pics of my amazing package from Jexxican!  I didn't get any pics of the unwrapping... Because, well, I was too excited to take my time. LOL!

Meet Bradford and Olivia.



We spent a lot of time getting to know each other yesterday.  However, I soon learned that Bradford is just crazy for Olivia.  I was pretty much ignored while the two enjoyed their fresh romance.



It wasn't long after their arrival that a game of hide and seek ensued.  And being the gentleman that he is, Bradford always let Olivia win.



As though she wasn't bananas about him already, Bradford decided to step it up with pony ride.  Olivia had a difficult time keeping balance (what with her beautiful dress) but Bradford helped keep her steady.



Because Bradford had given Olivia such a good time, she asked to borrow a book to read to him.  Of course, I obliged.



Then followed cookies.



After such a long date, the two were ready to rest for a while.  They snuggled on the chair and just relaxed.

All in all, a great day!

****************

Jexxican took my "Roaring 20s" theme and really brought it to life.  Olivia's dress is adorable and Bradford is the most charming monkey I've ever seen!  She also included a pack of sock monkey stickers but my sons quickly snapped them up.  So they are not pictured, unfortunately.

Thanks, Jexxican, for making my first swap so awesome!  Hope you like your package as much as I love mine!!!
