Sock Monkeys are adorable

Updated on June 6, 2013

Moe Monkee: "I'd love to be your friend."

Specially and individually hand-sewn sock monkeys from its primate family. Each sock monkey friend is made with love and care and unique in its own personality. They get adopted and get to share their love. MoeMonkees are just so adorable!

Moe Monkees and many others made new friends and gave them lots of hugs and love.

I started with an old pair of socks. From one sock monkey followed more of them. I just kept going but I cannot keep them all and it made me glad to find these monkey pals each a new friend. They make a really great gift one would love to have.

I name the sock monkeys after their owners. It will remind me where they went. This is part of the memory since I can't keep them ALL to myself. Each cuteness will make you want and keep it for yourself. But wait, isn't it a great gift for a classmate, a teacher, a boyfriend, a girlfriend, someone's birthday or as party give-away? Okay now, I know you would like one too! There is no use of birth control here...just keep going and going. I'm going bananas!

Where to Find Cheap Socks?

Check out ebay.com or ebay.ca. There are many other stores you can check out as well: Dollarama, Ardene, Sears, liquidation stores, warehouse sales, etc.

Purchase in bundles. If you are planning to make a business of making sock monkeys, I found great sock patterns and I paid within the budget from liquidation stores. Now, I have a trunk full of socks!

      Your creations are fantastic! To enhance the hub itself I'd like to know how you started making these Sock Monkees. I'd also be inclined to reduce the number of photos in this hub and make a series of hubs about your creations and use the photos throughout these works. Good luck with this endeavour.

      I'm glad that you have given me some thoughtful advice, MazioCreate. I am not sure where this hub will lead me to as yet. I am fresh to this (smile) and still get lost with the functions and navigation :) I sincerely appreciate your kind thoughts and I'll see what I can do. Thanks a bunch!

      Good luck with your Hubpages experience. If you can use word or PowerPoint where you insert graphics etc you'll be okay with this site.

      These are cute. Maybe just the thing for me to make from the huge basket of mismatched socks I have collected. Voting and pinning!
