Sock Monkey JCS ornament completed 2010




Finished my first Christmas ornament from
the JCS 2010 Ornament issue. It is the
sock monkey. How cute is he. I changed
the color of the hat to green. It is my sons
favorite color and I like it better then the
purple. I chose the red mittens over the
purple. The fabric is the same fabric
I used on the Halloween ornament. The
yellow and green matched perfectly. The
cording is trimmed in yellow. It is so
nice when everything matches perfectly.
I like my finish better then the one on
the cover of JCS. I really like changing
and tweeking a chart to my tastes. I
have so many I want to do from this
issue. I have started my second
ornie already. 20th finish

When I saw this finish I liked it so much better than the magazine and then I read about all the color changes! That must be why it caught my eye this time!! Very cute!
