my first ever sock monkey! made this for the Sock Monkey/Critter swap. my original partner had a "Disney Princess" theme on her list, so i decided to go with Jasmine. (unfortunately my first partner flaked, but mini_mum
was gracious enough to be my replacement partner and give this monkey a loving home. thanks!)
everything is fabric except for the button eyes. facial features and belly button were drawn in micron pen
lounging with her magic carpet
watchin' some tv in my studio apartment.. can i just say? the shoes took me like 3 drafts to get right. phew!
i used a second pair of socks to make her hair. they had some woven stripes and diamonds that made me think of braiding.
there was a lot of experimentation involved in this project, but i'm pleased with how it finally turned out.
