Why is it, do you suppose, that all the monkey blogs I go to only have monkeys without clothes? As you have seen in previous pix, my monkeys have clothes on. Or, why is it, that I feel the need to put clothes on my monkeys? The first monkey I received (sock monkey) was dressed rather nattily (sp?) in hat, shirt, vest, pants & shoes. Maybe that set the tone for the monkeys at my house. Bucket (soon to be vacationing monkey) even has on socks & shoes. When Bucket was made he had a shirt and short pants on, but he felt like he was walking around in his undies (well, as much as he walks around). So I had to make his long pants. We already had the sweater and shoes from the dolls and he needed a hat - thus the bucket hat and his name.
