These are our sock monkey creations for the July month of softies event. We
used the traditional socks (new ones!), and we dressed and stuffed the
monkeys with fabric and fibers from my stash. Ms. Monkey is sporting a
sweater knit with a hemp and cotton yarn, with a floss embroidery flower.
Her skirt is constructed from cotton Liberty fabric. Mr. Monkey has blue
overalls with plaid accents. These monkeys will be part of a baby shower
gift for our great friends; they’ll be paired with Cece Bell’s sock monkey
books. Chris got creative with the posing. Do you recognize the American art
