Sock monkeys for adults

Remember the perennial sock monkey?

I still have a vintage one that mom made me back in the day.   (I will not tell you how long ago that was.)

When the nieces and nephews were babies, I attempted to make some sock monkeys and even some sock elephants.

I think the elephant is still waiting, half finished with stuffing falling out.

Segue to last January.

I am a sucker for after Christmas sales and not just any sales.   I live for the 75% and 90% off sales.    I found some sock monkey wine bottle covers (originally $18) for a steal.

I bought a couple.

Can you believe this was originally $18?????

Segue to this Christmas.

I pulled one of those sock monkey covers out of the box.    I realized that they were simply a sock with two buttons sewed on.    I paid any amount of money for this?

I looked in my stash of sock monkey makings and found two more socks and some buttons.

On my to-do list.

On my to-do list.

I think mine will look just like the  $18 one?

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

Luckily, my family is not coming until tomorrow!

I am off to finish some last minute cooking, wrapping, and gift-making!

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday!

Merry Christmas to all!

(Sorry about the pictures.   This was hastily written and hastily photographed and wouldn’t you know it?    Drop box didn’t work, I couldn’t email them to myself and when I tried to down load them off the camera, all I could do was small square photoes!!!!????????)

Have a very Merry Christmas!
