Made from the famous, traditional Rockford Red Heel Socks, this iconic children’s toy was first made by mothers for their children during the Great Depression of the 1930’s. I make each of my sock monkeys one at a time, using one pair of Rockford socks and polyester fiberfill stuffing. My monkeys have vintage button eyes (buttons will vary), embroidered features and red yarn accents. Created in remembrance of my very first sock monkey that was made for me when I was a baby by my Great-Grandmother Lovelady.
