The boys have been invited to friend's birthday party next weekend. Their friend and his parents asked for sustainable gift-giving. The invitation read, "Please recycle a gift like a favorite toy or book, hand make something from your heart, or contribute to a cause."
The boys and I chose the first and the second options. Their job was to find something that they can re-gift, and my job was to hand make something. I decided to try my hand at making a sock monkey, complete with a knitted hat and scarf. (I used a doll pattern for the knitted hat) He was made, with lots of love, from a pair of Rockford Redheel socks. How did I do, Esme?
