This is one of my non-card making activities - making sock monkeys. It all started when my local quilting guild started making them to go in Ambulances to give to young children for comfort and to distract them when they are hurt.
I don't make button eyes because sewn felt eyes can be given safely even to a baby.
I've also made them to give to migrant refugee children who often arrive here with nothing, and also to a friend who volunteers in India. There is no nationality limitations with sock monkeys!
Some people went on to make other kinds of animals, but I figured these cheeky fellas make me smile so they are sure to make a child feel better.
