I have been enjoying making these monkeys up for the last couple of evenings. And today they were able to bask in some rare winter sun. Still to decide if they need clothes, I kind of like them without. When I made Betsy, my first sock monkey, I tea dyed her to make her look old, and stuffed her with old cut-up shirts, so she is heavy and lumpy. These two are lovely and squishy and soft though.
