How *hard* could it be?

My friend's birthday is coming up this weekend, and she's been having some rough times, so to cheer her up I made my first sock monkey.  He is currently named Monkey until she picks a super pirate name for him.....There's been talk of creating an army of them, complete with ship


So here's his pirate face!  I made all the clothes from scrap fabric, and hand sewed them all.  You can see his little Jolly Roger on his eye patch.


Here he is all dressed up and ready to pillage!  I even managed to find a lone hoop earring in the house for him


Butt patch!


My bf's suggestion, a little heart tattoo


Under his eye patch there's...nothing!

Thanks for looking.  Comments/crit welcome  Grin

Ya, she unwrapped it, and goes "Is it a pollywog?" then she pulled him out and was like "Sweet!"  SHe's going to make a back story for him
