My Mom made hundreds of these sock monkeys when I was a little girl. Wish I would have kept one! She always put little hats on hers, so I made one for mine, too. The tassle is frayed red grosgrain. I used a small stylus to create the ribbing (like the socks had) on the arms and legs, then sponged lightly with Close to Cocoa.
I added the sentiment as an afterthought...it was an optional part of the sketch challenge.
