This is Kurt Cobain:


This is Kurt Cobain as a Sock Monkey:



I used a pair of Kodiak Boot Socks for him, as well as yellow yarn and blue embroidery thread. ALL of the stitching is done by me by hand, both on him and his clothes, and I've never done embroidery (or, for that matter, made a sock monkey) before. His guitar is a printout of one of the actual Kurt's guitars, which was then glued to manilla paper and cut out.

For more pictures of the sock monkey, including before and during pictures, go here:

And for more pictures of Kurt Cobain, check out these links:

I'd like to sell this sock monkey. Would anyone want to give him a good home? (I'll even include a poster.)

LOOKING FOR A PERSONAL SWAP: I'm hoping for dinosaur-themed Xmas crackers, or other dinosaur Xmas items. I can make a Jayne Cobb hat, or many other things!
