Q. Why did the monkey fall out of the tree?
A. Because it was dead!
I told you. Bad.
Anyhow, my daughter asked if I could make a "dead" sock monkey for her to give this teacher. How could I say no? I showed my daughter the socks I already had that she could choose from and she chose a red monkey with cream details.
I think it's kinda cute.
Better than my Peeps. I saw a tutorial for the cutest felt bunny peeps here and just had to make some. The plan was to make them before Easter and give them to the girls.
When I got Peep #1 done to the stage where you stuff it, I decided I didn't like it. So I abandoned it and went on to Peep #2. I decided to sew this one up differently. Bad idea. I like Peep #2 even less than I like Peep #1. So I abandoned this too. Easter came and went and the unstuffed, unloved felt Peeps just hung around. Taunting me. So I decided to at least finish them and see what they look like.
You know what?
Stuffed and sewn up, they are kinda cute. I like Peep #1 better than Peep #2. Go figure...
Another part of the plan was to place them in these over sized plastic Easter eggs I picked up. Guess what doesn't fit in the eggs. Now I have absolutely no idea what I am going to do with them. But I did learn to finish what I start because you never know just how it will turn out until it is done.
