well, the good news is, when I went out with my friend to buy all the stuff for her SA gift basket I brought the light pink monkey and told her she could include it for the baby.  She loved it so much that she asked me if I had anymore cause she needed 6 gifts for family members and these would be perfect.  Well, lo and behold - I had 6 monkeys left - she bought them all.  HOORAY!  No more sock monkeys!!

I'm sorry about the poor showing at the craft show.
But...you just helped your friend with her gifts!!!!
And if her family would ever want to buy these cuties for others, she could just have them call you. Instant
referrals. WooHoo!!!!

May I ask what you used for the monkey's eyes?

Usually I would use buttons, but in this case I found a hole punch that was just the right "eye size" and punched out some thick felt, then dabbed a little white paint on. They were glued on well with Fabri-tac.  I thought this was a safer option for real little kids (?) although embroidering them on is probably best.  Some of these socks were so squishy and soft though, that the embroidery just doesn't want to show up very well.  I guess the possibilities are endless.   Grin
