Sock monkeys

Geronimo, the afore-mentioned sock monkey, was the pure delight of five teen-aged girls at my home yesterday. As promised, I showed them how to make their very own. Although, of course, they are sans-socks, because who would wear such things in 130 degree heat? So the village's first generation of "sock" monkeys is in the works. We are using old pieces of fabric, bright, dashing, and perfect.
