What do you get when you cross two pairs of baby socks and a silk lei with a pair of flip-flops?



Tiki monkey shoes, of course!

Action shot:



And the ingredients:



My husband was along at the dollar store when I bought this stuff. He thought I was nuts when I explained what it was for. I spent $4 on materials ($1 for each pair of socks, $1 for the flip-flops, and $1 for the lei), not counting the needles, thread, a bit of fiberfill, and a scrap of black yarn, all of which I already had in my craft closet. I'm not sure how practical these will be or how well they'll hold up, but I think they make pretty good house slippers.

I wish the lei had been bright pink to match the monkeys, but they didn't have any in the right shade.
