When my wife and I found out that we are expecting our first child due in April 2013 we agreed to not rush into every baby store we come across. But because of the excitement about our news I wanted to make something special for our future first born.
So I decided to make a sock monkey and started looking for instructions and online. Upon the first search I came upon some great instructions and the monkeys on this site were super cute. So I went into my wife's sock draw to look for the perfect pair of sock and voila, her green socks with an orange-red strip. It's perfect because Appleseed is our placeholder name for our little fetus. I thought, I'll name the monkey apple seed and I always like green apples and love the colour.
So without further adieu, this is Apple Seed.
