Making Used Socks Useful Again

Many years ago, I wanted to present all of my loved ones with something special for the holidays, but funds were particularly lacking that year. After weeks of searching, I came across a pattern for a simple sock monkey. While having little (read, no) experience with sewing, I figured it wouldn't be too difficult to make a few little guys. After several "re-do's" pricked fingers and a lot of sweat and laughs, I made them. I was quite proud of having created something and they were loved by all who received one. The following year, under the encouragement of my boyfriend, I participated in my first "craft show" and I have been doing this ever since.

**All of the socks I use are worn, discarded socks that would otherwise be thrown out. You would be surprised at how excited people are to have a place to send their unwanted socks!**
