It’s reunion time, and the sock monkey family didn’t want to be left out of the summer festivities. We have gathered the siblings and cousins for one final group shot before they have to go their separate ways. Clara Belle is relaxing in a sun dress and bloomers with matching hair ties that coordinate perfectly with the Mini Chunky Chevron quilt. The fabulous bed was handcrafted by Diane’s son, Clark, using all mortise and tenon construction.
Here are the girls catching up on the newest gossip while wearing the latest in sock monkey couture. Olive and Hazel are wearing blooming pedal pushers and a patchwork pinafore, respectively. Notice the Chinese cousin, Ling Ling Sue, and the chopsticks in her hair. She took away the Most Distance Traveled Award.
And here we have the whole crew together lounging on a collegiate blanket and the Mini Modern Herringbone Quilt. Those are some really cheesy smiles, guys.In this close-up you can see Mable Louise in her ducky night dress & cap, and McDonald in a pom-pommed tam-o-shanter.Herbert is sporting a BYU football jersey, Christopher Robin has a ball cap and propeller bow tie, and Herkimer has a red vest and surf shorts. This is also a better view of Ling Ling Sue’s traditional Chinese dress, and Betty’s cheerleader skirt and top braid ponytail.
By way of explanation, all of these monkeys were made for members of the family and dressed to reflect individual personalities. they were a lot of fun to make and even more fun to gather them back together. We will be doing a sock monkey tutorial on our blog in the upcoming weeks, so watch out for that. We have two new babies who still need their own monkeys.
