Just finished my first sock monkey made out of small red heel socks.  She's 13" tall. All of my other ones are made from Large socks and turn out about 18" tall.

Here's Mindy Monkey



Thanks for letting me share!

4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Amelia takes Flight on: July 25, 2009 08:26:41 PM
Here's one more that I did recently for a girl who shares a birthday with Amelia Erhart.  It was a birthday gift, so I did a party dress, but also gave her a flight jacket, cap and goggles so she was ready to take flight.

     

She's a Raspberry Truffle sock monkey, hand-dyed to pink perfection.

Thanks for lettin' me show them off.
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Miss Mollie Sweet Tooth on: April 22, 2009 01:00:20 PM

I'd like you to meet Miss Mollie Sweet Tooth.  She's the latest little monkey born at Sock Monkey Ranch and is the little sister of Miss Millie, the fiesty little gal who owns and rund the ranch.  Some people say that Miss Millie and Miss Mollie look so much alike that sometimes they're mistaken for twins.  There is one major difference, however...Miss Mollie has a major sweet tooth.  Heck, she has a whole mouthful of them, which is why she's insisting on carrying a big bag of sugar with her at all times.  That way she can dip into it when ever she needs a picker-upper...sometimes she doesn't even use a spoon!

Thanks for letting me show her off.
7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Cletus Dean and Clovis Dean Baker on: February 23, 2009 12:54:58 PM
Cletus Dean Baker AKA Tumbleweed (on the right) has been hanging around Sock Monkey Ranch for quite some time, now, but his brother Clovis Dean Baker (on the left) just rolled into the ranch around dusk last night.



He and Cletus spent most of the evenin' sitting round the big old porch at the ranch house swappin' tall tales.  I'm not sure which one of them tells the biggest golly-whoppers, but they sure kept the ranch hands in stitches and wonderin' which of the stories were true and which were pure hog-wash.

I also hear that Ma Baker had a third son...Clarence Dean Baker.  (She gives all her boys her maiden name for a middle name...she was Etta Mae Dean before she married Pa Baker.)

Thanks for lookin'
8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / I Love Lucy - Vitameatavegamin Sock Monkey (picture heavy) on: February 21, 2009 10:27:48 AM
Woot-woot...I just finished a custom designed Lucille Ball sock monkey, fashioned after the Vitameatavegamin episode.  The dress is a replica of the one worn in the show.  I've even included a giant bottle of Vitameatavegamin, a spoon and a copy of the script Lucy read for the scene...and I made the monkey's head tilt just a little because she's...well, just a little tipsy!











Lucy was a lot of work, but my friend, who is a Lucy Fanatic is just going to love her!

Thanks for letting me show her off.
9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Blueberry or Raspberry? on: February 06, 2009 08:50:56 PM
Just completed a new Raspberry Sock Monkey named Bailey



and a Blueberry Sock Monkey named Juliet



They are on their way to two little girls in Germany!

Both were made from original Rockford Red Heel socks, but have been hand-dyed before being fashioned into sock monkeys...I'm havin' way too much fun!

Thanks for looking.
10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Nanner...nanner...nanner! on: January 15, 2009 05:11:11 PM
Hey, just finished this little guy.  His name is Nanner Ned.  It was my first try at a fleece top with an applique.



Also finished a little girl monkey.  I couldn't decide if she is a princess or a fairy, so I named her Aurora...Princess of the Fairies.



Thanks for letting me share my creations.  I have so much fun making them, I just have to show them off.

Now, I'm off to look at other Craftster's cute creations!
