A friend of mine at Evil Squirrel’s Nest recently won this sparkle pony as a prize.
Funny thing is, around the same time he was given this Rainbow Unicorn.
Pattern for this beautiful critter can be found here
It is the end of the year and I have literally mountains of work to do plus gifts to make for friends and family and instead I started to wonder what would happen if these two critters became “close personal friends.”
Hello world! I believe the offspring would look like this. Then I decided (because making this was so much fun) that a little brother or sister would be in order so…..
Twice the cute!
obviously they need to be together so look out for a package Bill!
Sock monkey and the baby socks destined to become his little brother. We are in Barwon Heads enjoying the sun and surf. The children get to escape the “helicopter parent” (me) and bike ride, climb trees and walk about on their own. OK I admit it, I still fret but I leave them to it. When they return it is time to make things and sometimes they put on a play for us. This holidays we are making baby sock monkeys using what else? Baby socks. I will post the end result but meanwhile enjoy these originals.
What do you do when you go on holidays with children at the beach? You finish your craft projects of course and start new ones
The children are seen here working on their sock monkeys. How adorable is the pink monkey with red hair? If you want to know more about how to make a sock monkey click here. The first stop is to Ocean Grove sewing centre. Shop 2, Park Lane, Ocean Grove. Victoria. It is a small shop with a lot to offer. I was directed to this shop by a friend and from someone who lives in inner Melbourne, I was amazed at the variety of goods on offer. Another really interesting thing about this shop is that you can purchase items one at a time and not a bag of 20 when you only wanted 3. Ocean Grove Sewing Centre gets a big gentlestitches tick of approval for this example of sustainability .
The children finished the monkeys.
and then dressed them with items from the Barwon Heads All Saints opp shop before sending them outside to play.
Wow! The view from here is amazing!
Then time for a rest!
Time to finish it all off with tea and homemade rock cakes. Yum! Love holidays.
