This sock monkey is MADE TO ORDER.

This deluxe Día de los Muertos [Day of the Dead] sock monkey is handmade/handsewn by Vancouver artist/therapeutic art facilitator Katarina Thorsen, and is part of her POST STREET sock creations!

“The visible stitch is the mark of the artist.”

This hand-sewn adorable and cuddly sock monkey is made from classic work socks and has a hand-drawn embroidered sugar skull face. The monkey wears single cloth flower headdress and skirt (each order unique). It has a hand-drawn, embroidered portrait of Frida Kahlo on the skirt. It measures about 24 inches tall.

POST STREET sock creations are individually made and hand-sewn.

Note: Frida’s face, flower, lace, skirt and skull designs will differ order to order.

Frida Kahlo themed window display @GranvilleOptic May 3-31! Proceeds benefits life skills program development!

Cozy hand-knit “tree-trunk” scarf with little scarf bird by Poststreet

Leave a comment Standard

The scarf and sock bird are both hand-knit.  The big green buttons are vintage and were found in a curiosity shop in Fort Langley BC.  The wool is made in Italy and is 50% new wool and 50% acrylic which makes it very comfortable around the neck.  I bought the wool at the heavenly Knit & Stitch Shoppe in West Vancouver BC.

I love how cozy the results are and I love the feel of the scarf when wearing it!  I love the effect around the neck!  Can’t wait to make the next one!  [I love exclamation marks!!!]
