I’m talking about Psychedelic Sock Monkeys, made from tie-dye socks.
Remember how my mom and I were making sock monkeys? Well, we’re totally making sock monkeys. Fabulously flawed and completely unique sock monkeys. And this is our first Psychedelic Sock Monkey.
This one is actually going to my good friends Wendy and Joe who suggested the idea for a tie-dye sock monkey a couple weeks ago. (Pssst. There’s another available at my Etsy Shop. Ya know. Just, FYI. Or whatever. You don’t have to buy one. You can just go there and admire our handiwork.)
Since then, my mom and I have been working out the details to bring the Psychedelic Sock Monkey notion to fruition.
At first, we thought we’d tie-dye our own socks. Yeah!
When that didn’t work, we found a fabulous vegan store that sells organic tie-dye socks and decided that was the way to go.
I don’t know about you, but, Good Mornin’ Starshine, I think our Psychedelic Sock Monkeys are adorable. If you don’t, that’s okay. I mean, the world is filled with all kinds of people. Some people like some things and others just don’t. Some people have hearts bursting with love and happiness and others have cold, black shriveled remnants of a heart composed of dirt and ice, maybe even worms. But, come on people now, smile on your brother, everybody get together, try and love one another right now. Even the sock monkey haters. (Let’s be honest, they probably need our love the most.)
