Fall has fallen, oh yes, with rain and red leaves. And with fall comes wool (not mothy wool; good, warm, snuggly wool), and with wool comes Etsy. Two new Etsy loves, from me to you.

Cozy up and get crafty.

Small is cozy. Like a handsewn pirate sock monkey, made for me by Mr. Man seven years ago.

Pirate sock monkey

At Living Small, crafts are king. (More on that here, here, and here.) Why buy something new when you can make something special?

So: Wanna make yer own monkey? Here’s a pattern. Sock elephant? No prob. Now, get cozy with your favorite smalls, and get crafy with a pair-a socks.
