During the Victorian era, there was a craze in Europe for stuffed animal toys. Later in the United States, when times were hard, women used their husband’s old socks, socks that could no longer be darned, to make “lovies” for their children. I started crafting sock monkeys with this in mind, even when you can’t afford something, a loved one will find a way!
