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.
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!
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.)
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!
