Needle Felted Sock Monkey





Well here he is....SOCK MONKEY!!!!!!!!
When I visited Bettina Makel's blog (she does fabulous needle felting) I was so inspired with her tribute to the movie "Harvey" and her version of the Rabbit and sock monkey, I told her I just had to try it..
I took my rovings and needles to my quilt retreat and made this one. Everyone just Loved him and they kept snitching him throughout the week-end and had him sitting amongst their things!! VBG

Thanks Bettina..... I was looking around online to see where i could take some classes on this subject. Any ideas? I just Love the 3 dimentional felting .Oh I might as well admit it.... I like all of it, flat, dimentional, It is a very rewarding and forgiving thing to do as long as you don't stick your fingers!!!! Yikes!!! I have a few battle scars VBG
