Awww - thanks everyone for your great responses - unfortunately the craft fair was a bust - very poorly organized and in such an out of the way place that no one could find it without some kind of signage!  There might have been 15 people that came through all day!!!  I sold two monkeys - but the vendors were pretty irrate.  Live and learn I guess - I'm glad the money I paid for the table went to a charitable cause - but I doubt anyone who was there today will do that show next year!  (Now what the heck do I do with all these monkeys??)  LOL!! Cheesy

You can always give them out for gifts this holiday season. Or even better contact your local childrens hospital or receiving home, they are usually estatic to get something as special as these. Sorry the fair was a bust.

sorry it wasnt that good
if not giving them for gifts you could donate them to childrens hospitals, childrens home or if you have them where you live womens refuges as sadly this time of year is when they are busiest, also charity options like the shoebox appeal ones

I used adult (one size fits all) slipper socks.  Some were a little bit smaller than others depending on the socks, but theywere all pretty "normal" sized monkeys.  Grin

OMG I'm in love with these monkey's!! My 2 youngest daughters happen to be sitting here with me when I opened this page and they've both expressed their love for them as well. Now I need to find out how to make these lovely things. They'd be awesome Christmas gifts for the youngsters in my life!!!

You probably have the right ones - kind of in between an ankle sock and a knee sock.  The legs will be stitched right up the middle of the "ankle" of one sock - the other sock will be used for arms, mouth, tail and ears. (I found that the space from just below the heel to the toe is about equal to the length from just above the heel to the top, so that ought to give you an idea if your socks are a good size.)  I also saved a square from the ankle for the ears - so the tail won't go the whole length of the sock - more like 3/4. I will say that there's not a lot of room for error - I used up just about every little bit of those socks! Smiley Use a marker to draw out all the sections before you cut or stitch.  Hopefully I didn't confuse you - let me know if you have any more q's!

Oh - and thanks for the donation ideas.  I'm adding one today to my friends Salvation Army gift basket - I'm sure they'll all find homes.  Thanks Munch for the comment - once you get the hang of it you'll be able to whip these babies up in no time! Grin
