Reduce, Re-Use and Recycle (or crafting)


I’ve been seeing a lot of Sock Monkeys on Pinterest so it seems like they’re all the rage. My co-worker paid attention when I asked people for closet cast offs. She gifted me with a bag full of items worthy of my craft stash! In the bag was a pair of brightly colored “toe” socks, which just begged to be made into a sock animal. I’m not quite sure what it is, yet!

Basically, I just altered the sock monkey pattern a tad. Craft Passion has a great tutorial!! So many times I think we get caught up in following a pattern or someone else’s idea to a T, and we forget that half the fun of creating is, well….creating! That’s such a stress reliever for me. Use patterns as a springboard to your own creations! Anyway, here is my Sock Thingie. I have laughed and had a great time creating this guy!!

I have a confession to make. I went through my daughter’s pile of stuff to go to Goodwill and pulled out a couple of sweaters. They’ll make some GREAT stuff!
