Yes, it's a SPOCK monkey! Oops, is my nerdy side showing? ;) Yep, Star Trek fan here. And with my nephew's firstborn arriving a few months ago, I had to make this. I saw one in a store, but where's the fun in that? And then I wouldn't have discovered there's an entire book dedicated to Star Trek crafts. In case you are starting to worry, I didn't actually run out and buy it; just borrowed a copy from the library. At the beginning, it's just like making a regular sock monkey, not that I'd ever made one before:
That's an ear sitting beside him. :D The ears aren't quite shaped the way I would have liked them, but I think they get the idea across. I also didn't want Spock to be scary, so kept the classic eyebrows thin and short, hoping he wouldn't look too angry.
I'm not abandoning paper for socks anytime soon, but making my Spock Monkey was a lot of fun!
P.S. There's a day and a bit to go in the current Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge. If you have Mother's Day cards still to post, or want to really get a jump on next year, please join us! Saturday sees the start of our next challenge... and it's a good one. ;)
