I realise that this could come under toys but I made this sock monkey specifically for travelling. A friend of mine is going away and plans on taking this with her. Wherever she goes she will take a photo of him.
I have also created a myspace page for this which you can find here;http://www.myspace.com/craftykaren1
I have since added more travelling sock monkeys to my myspace page. Here are a couple of examples;
This one might be going to Australia
This one is going to a friend of a friend. not sure where he will be travelling to yet.
I also decided to make cards and attach them to the monkeys with ribbon. Inside the cards explains the few things the travelling sock monkeys need such as a name, history and of course to travel.
