Sock Monkey Sunday!!

I have been so busy making other monkeys that I've really missed making sock monkeys.   So, I decided that I'm going to make at least one sock monkey each week and post it on my blog on Sundays.   It will also go up on my Etsy page for sale the day that I post the blog.  

I'm going to try to figure out how to add inlinks to my blog so that you can all link pictures of sock monkeys that you have made as well.   Won't that be fun!!

Here's the sock monkey that I made for today.  
I thought red, white and blue would be fitting for Labor Day. And the anniversary of 9/11.

You can purchase the monkey here.

Have a safe and happy Labor Day everyone!


**Update**   I figured out how to add links!   Please add a picture and link.    :)

I have added my blog to the following blog hops.

Actually it's Labor Day weekend my dear! But still an appropriate monkey - I do think of patriotism when I think of Labor Day even though it's not really that kind of day. Plus, next Sunday is the 10 year anniversary of 9/11 :)

New follower from voiceBoks! Can't wait to see your creations. My mom and I both sew, although since I've been in college the past 6 years, I haven't had as much time as she has to sew. And she's mostly been making clothes for my 10 year old cousin's American Girl dolls :)

Thanks for following me! ~Sarah the Writer

P.S. I've never made a sock monkey but when I took sewing in high school, a couple of the boys in my class decided to make one for their "whatever you want" project. They dressed it up to look like Flavor Flav (I had no idea who that was at the time but I got a big kick out of a couple guys getting excited in a sewing class :D Plus, the monkey turned out pretty awesome.)

Stopping by from the blog hop and a new follower of your blog thru GFC. I would have followed on FB but had an incident with them 2 weeks ago and I have a post on my blog dated 8/20 explaining why so that I don't have a long comment here. I have left it to each blogger if they want to follow me now on FB or wait until I follow you first. Please leave a comment on my blog letting me know which you did as I am keeping a list of people I need to catch up with. Thanks for your help and have a great week!
