Classic American Sock Monkey Kit

Made in USA - Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania

What can be more fun than making an adorable American Sock Monkey?

The made in USA sock monkey kit includes pre-washed, cut and machine sewn parts from original "Red Heel" socks to make one brown monkey. The kit includes 2 buttons, pompom, red yarn and embroidery floss. You get to hand sew and stuff the monkey plus give him the first hug of many. That way you'll be making the sock monkey in the USA from USA made parts. You can't make a sock monkey any more classically American!

Fun for ages 10 and up with adult supervision.

Stuffing not included- just use the stuffing from an old pillow. (Stuffing is also available at fabric stores)

About Bonnie:
Each kit is created by Bonnie Kraus-Connelly in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. She has been making handmade Sock Monkeys for 25 years using Red Heel Fox River socks which are the direct descendent of Rockford Red Heel socks.

In 1932 Rockford Red Heel socks first became the iconic American sock monkey. The smile or frown mouth was achieved using the red patented heel. By 1955 every pair of "Rockfords" included a sock monkey pattern. Bonnie says sock monkeys are special, because “even though the sock has always been mass produced — the toy is not. It is handmade. That alone makes it special. It was and still is born from the individual makers’ ‘love to create’ — it is born from a beautiful and positive desire to ‘give’ to another person to enjoy. From a heart to another heart. To me, that is what is at the core of the sock monkey’s magic or mystic. Each one is unique.” (via Goshen News)
