My Creative Space - monkey business



Meet Bubbles. She's a cheeky lass. Loves a trip to the beach and a flirt at the icecream shop.


  And this is Rose. Bubbles is her best friend and she does worry about her sometimes. She likes to go to the beach too but she prefers to collect pretty seashells to add to her collection.
This is probably Ringo. I'm not sure until he's finished. You never know with sock monkeys, until you meet them properly, who they are.
Sometimes I don't find out who they are until they go to their new home.
Take Stripey for instance.


He didn't have a name or a personality until he went to his new home with M's friend last weekend. He was given both when he was unwrapped. I hear from M's friend's Mum that Stripey is spending an awful lot of time being cuddled in bed which I think he must be very fond of (all sock monkeys like a good cuddle).


I do love making these guys and I love seeing them go to a new home. Bubbles, Rose and Ringo (if he is indeed a Ringo) will be coming along with me to the Devonport Craft Market this Sunday, 6th March, 32 Clarence Street, Devonport, 10am-3pm. Come along and say hello if you can.
For more Creative Spaces, pop along to Kootoyoo.
