This is my first sock monkey!  I made it for the latest sock monkey swap.  It's made out of a merino wool sock with an elastic fringe "grass" skirt and polymer clay coconut bra.  I took beading elastic, silk flowers and glass beads to create the flower wreath for her head.  



Since her tummy shows, she just had to have a little belly button.



I am really pleased with how she turned out.  I had a huge goof on the nose but It turned out great.  You can't really see it in these pictures, but it looks like a gorilla nose with nostril holes.  



My partner posted some better pictures than I took so if you'd like to see more follow the link!   http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=392084.30

If you'd like to swap for some good clean fun, pm me!  I make cold processed goats milk soap and shampoo bars.

She's really cute. You can't really goof up with a sock monkey. They all have their own unique look.
