Donation for the American Cancer Society

sock monkey basket
What a better donation than a basket full of fun happy sock monkeys!! I was asked to donate a craft basket for a Chinese Auction to help raise money for The Cancer Society and couldn't resist creating a basket with my favorite crafts, Sock Monkeys and Crochet!

What a find...the perfect basket with fun colors and balls around the edge. I used that as the theme dressing one monkey in a ball uniform and making a crocheted baseball and cap. One I just dressed in fun baby clothes and I crocheted two bananas for the cheerleaders to hold leaving the trouble making little boy....I crocheted him a miniature gecko with googly eyes.
I completed the basket with hanging three rubber balls from the handle and used fancy sport paper napkins as filler. Wrap it up and hope it takes in a bundle for a great cause!!!
