When the Sock Monkey set first came out I was pretty neutral about it. I know a lot of you love Sock Monkeys but it never did much for me. Sock Monkeys have grown on me but I just don't have the emotional attachment to them. I think it is because I grew up in Hawaii and we just did not have wool socks or even very heavy socks around. I never owned a Sock Monkey so I don't have fond memories from my childhood about them.
One of my hostesses owns the set and wanted some ideas on how to use it. I offered to make some samples for her.

It was really fun playing with the set and I am sorry to see it is retiring along with both Sock Monkey accesories sets. If this set is one you always wanted for cards or scrapbooks be sure to place your order soon. I have a couple more Sock Monkey samples to share with you so check back tomorrow!
