Here are pics of some of the gifts I've made so far this year. I had a kit to make sock monkeys, which I've been meaning to use forever. I think it came out pretty cute! The monkey is going to Payton Rose in Southern California.
One thing led to another, and Leo and I decided to make a sock elephant for his Secret Snowflake at school, who loves elephants. Greg thought the nose looked a little phallic, but you can see how sweet it's little face is in the detail!
Naturally, that led to something else!! I found the coolest instructions for these sock monsters on the internet, and had to make some of these. These two went to my nephews Grant and Marco in Colorado. These monsters are so fun to make! I kept cracking up every time I sewed on the features! They seem to come alive when they are made.
