Monkey love


It absolutely seems like the sock monkeys are my favorite item to make. I love making them, I love how adorable they are, and I love giving them personalities, making up their stories and taking their photos while they pose oh so openly.

The newest one is Tatu. She's a hardcore tattooist and contortionist currently living on the streets and singing for food. When I was making her I thought she needed some oomph so I started to applique felt designs on her (tattoos). I just have so much fun with them and I really hope that when people buy them they will make their day a little brighter, more fun, or more goofy (whichever feeling was lacking, I hope they fill the need).
