Sock monkey gets out of hand

 Sock monkeys are a piece of Americana. In 1890 Nelson Knitting began manufacturing these red heeled work socks. It all began in the early 1900’s when mothers started making stuffed monkeys out of the Original Red Heel socks. The socks are still produced today and they are back to selling the sock in blue. When you purchase a pair of socks, it comes with directions for making your own monkey. They are cute. One pair of socks makes a monkey.

The dress above is “Monkeys gone wild”.  Be creative, take that pair of socks that is just a bit too wild to wear and make them into a stuffed animal. 

See no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil….just have fun.
