DD #3 has always loved monkeys. I made her a sock monkey when she was little and it was lost years ago. She was reminiscing about her old monkeys and I decided to make her a new one. OK, I got carried away and made a little family. For those of you who have never done this before it is extremely forgiving sewing and turns out adorable even if you aren't that great a seamstress. Not like the bride's maid dress I'm working on.... but that's another story.
