Look's a wait....IT'S A MONKEY!!!!

What happens when you take some scissors, thread, stuffing, buttons, a pair of mismatched socks and miss your Sunday afternoon nap?

You create a SOCK MONKEY!!!!
......drumroll please....

~"Mr. Monkey"~
I have longed for quite some time to make one of these adorable creatures.  I was just waiting for the right pair of socks to jump out at me!!!  I found these pairs at Dollar General on clearance!!!  That made me even happier!  I spent my Sunday afternoon creating a new stuffie that my daughter immediately claimed as "Mr. Monkey"!  I wanted to name her Millicent.  Boy, you'd get a kick out of hearing Callie say THAT name! ;)
She wanted a picture of "Mr. Monkey" on her head!  I'm going to have to make another one now--for ME!
Getting a head start of summer play shirts for Samuel.  I tried some reverse coverstitching on these and I LOVE the results!
The orange one was the sample and turned out WAY too wide.  That's what you get for sewing while your son is sleeping! :)  Oh will work as a sleeper shirt!
Still have 3 more cut out waiting to be sewn up into something wearable!
Samuel tried on the shirt and he said, "Mommy, I LOVE this shirt.  It's so warm and comfy!"  Makes sewing all the more rewarding when your child says stuff like that!!!!
15 coin purse & tissue holders.  These will be shipped off to Mexico tomorrow.  Hopefully the snowstorm isn't as bad as predicted and I CAN get to the post office tomorrow!!
A close-up (fuzzy one) of the boxed corners of one of the tissue holders.  Don't you just LOVE that lime green mushroom fabric???  I do!!!
