Category Archives: Sock Monkey wig
A couple years ago I did a series of posts detailing how I went about making a pair of pink sock monkeys to help cheer up two women who were battling breast cancer.
That led to me making another pair of pink sock monkeys that were auctioned off to raise funds for a Texas-based breast cancer organization.
Since it’s still Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it seemed like a good time to revisit our Craft-a-Long from 2012.
If you don’t like pink, remember that you can make sock monkeys in other colors, too.
October is already here, as is breast cancer awareness month. If you didn’t get around to making a pink sock monkey last year, why not make one now?
The cool thing about making pink sock monkeys is the special pink Rockford Red Heel socks are sold in 2-pair packages so you can make a sock monkey for yourself and another to give away or donate to a breast cancer charity auction.
Here are step-by-step instructions from last year’s Pink Sock Monkey Craft-along to get you started. It’s as simple as 1-2-3.
If you’re not making a pink sock monkey, what are you doing for breast cancer awareness month?
I hope you decided to join our pink sock monkey craft-along in honor of breast cancer awareness month. If you haven’t started yet, there’s still time to make your monkey!
You’ve already met Cupcake, but allow me to introduce her slightly younger sister (only three weeks apart in age, go figure!), Endura. She’s the monkey you saw being pieced and constructed through much of the craft-along.
As a distance runner, the aptly named Endura sports a somewhat shorter ‘do than Cupcake. As a baker, Cupcake prefers her tresses long enough to pull back so they’ll stay out of the batter.
Both girls will soon be in new homes. Cupcake is going to a cupcake-obsessed woman fighting breast cancer for the second time, and Endura is going to a runner who is also battling breast cancer. These pink sock monkeys are more than sisters, they share a common bond as cheerleaders against a loathsome disease.
How’s your pink sock monkey progressing?
