Here is the awesome geek sock money I received from aunty hela. He is super special! I love his hat and pants details. The magnets are going with my Sheldon magnet from another swap. There are a ton of kitty head and kitty butt pictures between these two.   Roll Eyes




I'm going to post what I sent to aunty hela because she has been swamped.

I did a trio of old movie monster characters but in one of her favorite colors. The faces are felted angora and mixed wool. The edge of the monkey took forever. I almost gave up and threw him out. Meet Pinkzilla, Pink Kong, and the Not Giant Pink Octopus.

Getting a bit worried my monkey has gone AWOL on route

Am starting to feel that way, too, especially since yesterday I received a package from England that was sent out on the 5th of May.... Cry

Glad you liked it bobbiemay, did the keyring small get to you too? I really wanted to make a pipe to go with it but had absolutely no ideas at the time what to make it out of and felt just wasn't good enough for me, not realistic enough. Though being a Sherlock fan I'm sure you have plenty of props to put him with Smiley

Loving all the other themes coming through, what a varied bunch so far! X

Little Red has finally arrived!  In case you missed pinkmichk's post to the original thread, this cheeky monkey apparently decided she wasn't quite ready to travel over sea and land and after several weeks in the postal system was returned to pinkmichk.  Fortunately she seems to have had enough of travel and quite quickly made her way across the Atlantic and the breadth of America.

She brought with her some sweet treats and a pair of sweet earrings:

 

I haven't been looking at the gallery, so not knowing what pinkmichk had posted we did a little photo shoot as soon as I opened the package today.  Won't add more detail pictures to what pinkmichk has already posted, but do want to share a couple of fairy tale shots taken of Red at her new home.  Here she is on her way to Grandma's house...



...and at Granny's front door (OK, my front door)....



Thanks, pinkmichk!

So bobbiemay's praying got it here  Grin  Grin

OMG check it out
I am seriously spoilt. Arial from little mermaid is my fav disney character ever and I now have her in sock monkey glory! The shell bra and green tail are very detailed and detachable and i was even more lucky as she sent me my own Dakota travel mug. Btw the red wool hair is all hand sewn on with the rest of the face detail!

Bobbiemay i would love to know the type of socks you use? And stuffing? It's a large firm but soft creature and i'd love to know for when we get to do round 2? X
