Guest Pinnage – Alex’s Sock Monkeys!

My super creative friend Alex has been busy with various craft projects over the last few months, so this is the first of a number of posts to share her efforts :)

Today is Sock Monkeys Sunday!

Here’s some Pinterest fodder on the subject:

In my head I needed to buy the biggest socks I could but this just created long and lanky monkeys!
