Monkey See, Monkey Do
Do you wanna play with me? I sure wish you would!
Have you read about Craft Hope's latest project; Sock Monkeys for Texas? When I saw it, I knew I had to do it. And then I figured out a way to get my Daisy Troop involved. It's a little complicated for the little girls to do all the steps involved, but with a little planning, we'll take a couple weeks to get them completed.
Last week each girl brought in one pair of socks. Next week I'll have them all cut and ready to stuff so the girls can do that fun part. And then the moms who are willing to sew will all get together and complete the finishing touches. Right in time for sending them off by Thanksgiving.
Yesterday I made a practice monkey. I wanted to get my feet wet, figure out the quirks, and discover any problems that might arise. I am quite please with how he turned out!
So.....monkey see, monkey do??
