this was made for the Sock Monkey Swap R6.
my partner requested an elephant (i've done monkeys before, but this was a nice challenge)  Smiley

his cut-away jacket is made from scrap taffeta and velveteen, with a satin lining:

Not a one -- it looks like something with at least one tusk in formal wear.  But even from the teaser I can see that this critter and its outfit are another example of your wonderfully detailed and perfectly crafted creations, and I can't wait to see the whole thing!
eep! you make-a-me blush, waterbaby.
It's either A: a walrus or B: a vampire monkey.  Did I win the prize?   Grin
ahaha, now you are giving me ideas..

i received from Calsters! she made me Gromit (of Wallace & Gromit)  Smiley
i was secretly hoping she'd pick that theme. heh.

she also sent me a TON of extras, including a sock monkey game, a Downton Abbey bookmark, a hand crafted card, and a lovely knit cowl. THANKS, CALSTERS!!

I received a fabulous package from noelle today! I don't have a camera, so I'm hoping she remembered to take pictures so she can show off her awesomeness. She made me these wonderful, wonderful dolls of Freddie and Bel from the BBC show The Hour. It's set in the 1950's, and one of the many awesome parts of the show is the characters' wardrobes, and noelle really nailed it with the detailed clothes she made. Wow!

I also got two super cool magnets of Owen from Torchwood and Spike from the Canadian show Flashpoint.

Thank you so, so much, noelle!

glad you liked them! i did take some pictures.

here's Bel Rowley:

(she's got real pockets Grin)

and here's Freddie Lyon:

11th Doctor - Tardis tote bag w/ Doctor pin & illustrated photobook
(yay! i really wanted a tote bag!)

Emerson Cod (from the show "Pushing Daisies") - a lovely unlined notebook with his best quote

my aunt recently gave me an unexpected gift, and as she's a huge baseball fan i decided to make this sock monkey for her.
meet Monkey (Miguel) Cabrera:

i decided to just do his most visible tattoo

batting gloves poking out of his back pocket

he's a little overstuffed, like the real thing  Wink

a close-up of his eyes, which are a little hidden by his visor

i received from SunflowerSmiles! she chose my kendo theme.

she introduced him in a note:
I hope you enjoy Henry the Kendo Warrior Wannabe. He has no weapons since he's more of a lover than a fighter (he got tired of nicking his tail)

i love that he's blue.  Smiley

i couldn't quite persuade him to sit in seiza, but here he is in the lotus position.

SunflowerSmiles also included some cute fat quarters, a fun stretchy bracelet, and some very pretty earrings (i especially love the green ones).
i'm one happy swapper! thanks for everything!
