Sock Monkey Love!

Recently, I received a request I just could not refuse. A young woman who was getting married told me that on her first date, with her now fiance, he had bought her a sock monkey. Now that they were getting married, they wanted to 'kit' him out with a kilt, tie and top hat and commission a sock monkey bride for him.

I love a challenge! So, I figured out how kilts are made and even happen find the right color tartan in a mini print. Here is the result.   Cheesy

To see the little kilt in 360˚ there is a 17 sec video

Thanks for looking!

p.s. The sock monkey modeling the groom outfit was just a stand-in and not as big around as the real groom Smiley
