This summer in Texas it has been hot and dry. So dry that Wildfires have burned through 1.4 million acres of land and over 16,000 homes have been lost. In response, Craft Hope, a wonderful website that encourages crafting for a cause, is collecting handmade sock monkeys for children who have lost their homes in these fires.
I started with just one monkey but they are so cute and easy to make that now I have a small family. No doubt more little monkeys are on the way.
If you would like to participate in this project grab a pair of cool socks (crew length or knee- highs) and get sewing. I used the pattern from the Craft hope Book which you can find with full instructions on Craftstylish. The deadline for this project is November 24, 2011. Thanksgiving.
Learn more about this project and Craft hope on their website. Hopefully you’ll have fun making a monkey soon.
