I found this book ages ago at the library…and after i made my first one, Francis, i was hooked. Well, hooked may be the wrong word. I make these from time to time when the mood strikes me.
Basically, these are like sock monkeys–they just have a little more “sculpture” to them. I consider them more like a sock monkey Frankenstein, since i am just putting together pieces. But they are a lot of fun, and make for interesting conversation pieces.
So this was the batch i finished yesterday. i put them together and stuffed them a while ago, but didn’t sculpt them until yesterday. Once day I’ll get a picture of me wielding that big dollmaker’s needle.
