Funky Monkey(s)

I've had several good questions in my "Ask Me Anything" post. I'll address a couple of them now!

helcat1639 asked me what the photo in my banner was supposed to be... and my dear sweet husband and friend Leslie told me that I needed to make a sock monkey post.

Here's the original photo:

It's Henrietta the Sock Monkey helping me sew on my 1960's era Husqvarna "Greenie" sewing machine.

I made her awhile ago, so here are a couple of my newest creations.

Joey the Baby Monkey:

This guy still needs a name, but there's a definite 80's vibe going on if you ask me!
80's Glam Monkey!

So much so that Martijn told me I needed to make some leg warmers! I couldn't stop at leg warmers alone, so I had to make wrist bands and a sweatband for it's head too.

Any good ideas for names?

Goodness...I so LOVE these!

The 80's guy/gal immediately made me think of Cyndi Lauper. So, maybe "Cyndi", "Lauper" or "Justwannahavefun"??? :o)

Then, I thought of..."FAME!"
