The mouth is different now... more sock-like.
I have made a few different variations on the whole idea, too. One is super cute...
She's my Sassy Sock Monkey
And one is really creepy... Can you imagine someone knocking over a liquor store in this?
It was for my brother-in-law. He doesn't knock over liquor stores. That I know of, anyway.
And one was just kind of disturbing. I was going to make several of them for our Mud Run team and wanted them to each be different. I stopped after this one:
Yeah, it has legs and a tail.
I got kind of sick of making sock monkey hats for a while (any hats for that matter) but I saw a picture of a pirate sock monkey hat on Pinterest and I'm inspired again. My cousin's twins are turning 5 next month and I think I'm going to make them sock monkey hats for their birthday. A pirate and a punk rocker (mashing together my mohawk hat with a sock monkey... ).
I was also thinking about posting patterns for my hats. The Sassy Sock Monkey is all mine, but the original is a super modified version of someone else's pattern. How modified does it need to be for me to call it my own? And I'm not sure if I want to actually sell them or if I should post them as free patterns. I don't think I've ever seen a free sock monkey hat pattern (surely if I had I wouldn't have paid for one). I guess I'll stew about it while I'm working on the Pirate and the Punk.
