Mama, not turning it actually made it a little difficult to sew it all together. Totally different coordination used for making those seams look right. And it still hasn't sold! Oh well, I love him. And the one in the first pic on the last post that I said looked evil was the first to sell last week, too! Crazy!

I wasn't going to make more this past week but decided Wednesday I should. So I made 5! No buttons at all this week, I think I'm getting lazy, even though I did get a few "new" buttons this week from stuff. Yay!





That last one I was surprised with how he came out. I tend to try to mimic the pattern of the sock in the design but that was all stripey socks and all organic design. Hm. I like him.

These are wonderful! I love them. The hand stitching looks amazing and the little hat (I think on the original post) just makes my day. Smiley

Hey, thanks you two!

These are the last monkeys of the season. My last day at Market was September 28. I've been busy, though, so I haven't had any uploading time.

Buttons!


I recently moved so my sewing machine is not just hooked up but I've been trying to work on monkeys at least some each week so I'm not overwhelmed next summer. So far I've been buying socks and cutting them. That's all I can do until my machine is up and running. I have well over 40 pair of socks cut up and waiting right now!

Thanks, dream weaver. I've started a thread for this year's monkeys, rather than just keep updating this one. I've got some good ones. I'm excited to see who they all go to! It makes it worth it when someone falls in love with a certain monkey I've made. I've had people tell me it was like the monkey was designed just for them! That makes me happy.
