Sock Monkey

I have always loved Sock Monkey!

The fabric has been around for awhile, but I hadn't gotten around to getting mine yet. Fortunately I found a piece at my quilt shop recently.


I stumbled across this fun, and best yet - FREE - pattern online awhile back from the fine folks over at United Notions!

 Somewhere in the dark reaches of my quilting room, I even have a package of the original "socks" that are probably 35-40 years old. I know that it has the pattern for the monkey on the package. Gheez, that's probably a collectors item now!!! :-) I really should find them shouldn't I??

  3. Love seeing you having some monkey fun. I do like the sock monkey.
    We didn't have them here as kids growing up. More teddy bears.
    Your quilt looks great.

  4. What a perfect quilt. I love sock monkeys. I was so pleased when the fabric came out and I could snag some. Only thing is then I didn't want to cut it up but I did and sent it on its way. Fortunately I have more bits and pieces. The socks by the way are still available. I've bought them from - are you ready for this? - The Sock Company!
