541  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / One of many sock monkeys on: December 07, 2009 08:55:58 PM
My 9 year old daughter informed me yesterday while shopping that she wanted a sock monkey.  Her old one went missing when she was about 5.  Anyway....the ones at Walmart are $20.  Are you kidding me !?!?! 
So, I bought a  pair pack of socks for $7.  And decided to make them for her and her cousins.  This one, is merely the first of at least 6 that I am going to make this next week.

Hope you like her.  I think she suits a 9 year old...lol

My DH thinks the eyes are spooky.  But our DD loves purple...so if she wants, we can change them later. I think they suit it though.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks ladies  Grin  Craftster friends always make things better...lol.  I was actually really concerned about the color combos.  But I showed it to my dad, and he thinks she will love it. 

Starting to make another quilt in the next day or two, will be sure to post it.

p.s.  There are some amazing videos on youtube to explain quilting.  Especially the cathedral window.  I don't think I would have even tried if I hadn't been able to watch someone else do it first. Undecided

Thanks Cheesy
We tend to use shadow boxes for quite a few crafty projects.  I love dollarama too much...lol  Spend way too much money there.

This is my first attempt at something other than a patchwork quilt.  Our Christmas this year, is all handmade.  So this is what I made for my mom.  A simple Cathedral Window quilt.  Which, in all honesty, wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it would be!  Now I'm planning on making at least 3 more before Valentines day!!!

So, here are the progress pics.

All the little squares

Joined.  And not perfect!  I know that.  And my mom will simply say "My Grandma would say...A man on a galloping horse would never notice."  LOL.  My favorite saying by far as well.

My daughter trimming the batting, and one of our many pets trying to help her.


And showing how the back, and the outter boarder are the same.

 :)Hope you like it!  Any comments, or criticism are welcome.

Found this idea while browsing the internet, well, not exactly like it, but you get the idea.  Anyway my daughter loved it!  So, she made it for her grandpa as one of his home made gifts.  Something he can take to his office and "play".  His own Mini Zen Garden.  She even picked out the rocks, because the words reminded her of him.

Whole cost...less than 5 dollars, after tax!  All items from local dollar store.
Photo Box $1
Colored Sand $1
Word Rocks $1
Fork $1 (instead of rake)

After playing with it
