New Pattern… and FREE Bonus!

While Mez and I were in Houston a few years ago at the Quilt Market I fell in love with Sock Monkeys. Two of my favorite things… monkeys and soft toys.  I never really had a chance, it was love at first sight!

Sock Monkeys originated in America when mothers wanted to make toys for their children but didn’t have enough money for materials, so they recycled their husbands work socks to make toys.

With all this in mind I created this cute little sock monkey wall hanging ‘Monkeying Around’.  I like to call her Minkee, she was dropped off by the stork and she’s just hanging around waiting for you to make her your own.

The pattern comes with a full alphabet and numbers so you can personalize the stitching. You can use your favorite fabrics from your stash or choose a range of fabrics you love.

Change the colors to suit a boy or girl or use this as a center panel to make a larger quilt… the possibilities are endless!

But you see I couldn’t’ just stop there, my love (or addiction) for sock monkeys is so strong I had to make a Minkee Sock Monkey too! So here she is…

    How lovely your website looks and your little quilt is wonderful. It was a pleasure to quilt and the binding finishes it off a treat.

    Many thanks for your comments on how “clever” I am. I just love quilting and couldn’t possibly make enough patchwork tops to curb my appetite so I get to quilt others and as the saying goes “if you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life”.

    Another quilt of yours will be ready next week, so I will get to catch up then.
