. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Monkeys

Monkeys

I keep wanting to share some of the Christmas gifts I made this year.  One of my favorite newer projects are my sock monkeys.  I made one for my niece and nephew and then sold a lot of them to friends.  They turned out super cute and I didn't realize how popular sock monkeys are!  Here some pics of the ones I've made: 







I finally got time to add a sock monkey to my etsy shop! Check it out here!

Here are some of the other gifts I made this Christmas: 

A hobby horse for my nephew: 


pillows for my niece & nephew: 



the necklace my sister is wearing
here's a similar one in my shop.  

I loved being able to make a lot of my presents this year!  My new sewing machine is certainly getting a lot of use already!

Love how the sock monkeys came out. They look more like socks than the ones I have seen in stores and that's a good thing. I am a new follower visiting from Tatertots and Jello. Vicky from Mess For Less
