Sock Monkey Celebration

This was my Mother's Day present. It was entirely my daughter's idea. How cool are my kids? Yes, they both know that I love sock monkeys, yet own none - until now. My daughter has instructed me that I must sleep with him every night (it's always bothered her that I had no stuffed animals to sleep with, for she has a virtual zoo on her bed each night), and I declared that I would sew a felt Mom tattoo on him, like in the Kia car commercial. We all love that one. So, I thought it befitting to list some of my favorite sock monkey Etsy items:
Monkeys, rabbits, and other fabulous toys from Super Sock Monkeys

 The sock monkey hat from Strawberry Ric Rac

The invitation from Oh My Gluestick

  The edible cupcake topper from Two Sugar Babies

 The whole ensemble from  Nancy's Needles and Pens

 The oh so cool modern quilt from Sew Creativ

How I love the Spock Monkey from The Sock Drawer

This sweet painting from Exo Kitten

And this last one, which is destined to be mine, from Zparkley's shop.

I could go on and on with the monkey goodness! Of course, you could always grab an old sock or two and make your own! I'll leave you with the great song from the Kia commercial, which is getting heavy play on the iPods in the house
