Sock Monkeys!

These seem to be all the rage right now!

I found some fantastic instructions here for making your own sock monkey. Now I just have to find someone to give one to! My sister made a sock dog once and it was absolutely adorable. Eventually the ribbon fell off his neck, but he's still the cutest, and gets played with all the time.

I like all this diy stuff for gifts, but I wonder if anyone else appreciates it. I am planning on making a significant amount of christmas presents this year, and hope that I'm not wasting my time. If someone'd rather get a walmart gift certificate then maybe that's a more thoughtful gift.

For the record, I love diy gifts more than anything else, even when the sock puppy looks a little like something out of the twilight zone.

PS Can I bring you a new ribbon?

haha, now I know who anonymous is!

I was thinking if the ribbon was sewed on it would be more likely to stay on. You know how kids are...

I'll bring the dog and we can trade for baby monkey.
