Sock Monkey Love

Monkeys by me

Thanks to all of you who left lovely comments about my Creative Space yesterday. There was quite a lot of sock monkey love so I thought I'd give you the link to the Sock Monkey tutorial I wrote for the wonderful Good Magazine a few years back. (If you haven't read an issue before, go out and buy one immediately. It's a fab Green magazine meant for real people)

Let me know if you make one. I'd love to see what you make. And don't worry if you can't sew or haven't got the time. You can always buy a monkey from me! They're always available on my stall at The Devonport Craft Market and there just happens to be a market this Sunday 6th June, 10am-2pm, 32 Clarence Street, Devonport (next to the Depot Art Space and the New World Supermarket).

And an update on the Bling-Monster tulle wrestling mentioned in yesterday's post. You will be pleased to know that she has willingly handed it over for the greater good (ie so it can be made even more pretty when it's filled with flowers and worn as a fairy skirt).
