Look what I made for 55 cents! That's right!! My first sock monkey....Lucy. Monica at the Home Spun Heart had the craft up about a month ago, and I vowed to make my chicks some for Christmas. You can go to http://www.craftbits.com/ and look up this cute monkey. But you would probably do better heading over to the Home Spun Heart (in my side bar) and perusing her craft category.
1 long pair of cute socks (these are child's size so the body is a bit smaller and the legs are longer)
sewing machine (you could hand sew the whole thing)
2 buttons for eyes
I had everything left over from previous projects, so all I needed where some cute socks. I got 2 pairs for a $1.04 at Target. It took about 2 hours for my first one. Using the smaller socks is a bit more tricky, but I know I'll pick up speed as I continue on with the rest of the family!
Another tidbit I'd like to bring up is how grateful I am that we have an Emergency Fund. We've had some major dental bills this year. Far more than ever expected and it has been a great to pay them in cash. We even got a $100 off from the dental office to lessen the blow! Praise the Lord. So our EF has been depleted 4 times in the past 8 months. So on to rebuilding and getting rid of any debt!
Head over to Biblical Womanhood (side bar) Friday.
Also I need some cute old fashion names for the rest of my Monkey family (8 names) any great ideas??? Leave me a comment. Go make some Monkeys, Ladies!!
Have a Great Day! Julie
