Month of Softies gallery and new theme

Here is the gallery of images for July’s A Month of Softies – Sock Monkeys!
If your monkey doesn’t appear in this gallery it may be because either you have not yet set up your flickr account and uploaded your image or perhaps you have not added the tag “MOS July 2005” (including the inverted commas) to your image. There is some more info on tagging your images here.

If your softie is still not showing up even with a correct tag it could be that your account status is either pending or NIPSA (there are some more details on the Flickr site here.) I have been advised by Flickr support that if you think you may have this problem you should email them and find out your account status.

So all that being said and done, it’s time to announce the new theme for A Month of Softies.

“The Wild West” — (with a hat tip to Amy’s Tie One On theme for June) I have to admit that I have come up with this one for selfish reasons. Amelia has just requested that I make her a Jessie doll from Toy Story 2 for her birthday so I have cowgirls on the brain.

Here’s some fabric inspiration.

  1. I am so bummed I didn’t finish mine. I will eventually. Can I make a suggestion? It’s all so incredible, I don’t intend to come off complaining, I just thought this might help out…It might be easier to view the gallery if only one photo is posted per entry. Readers can see details at individual blogs (like how Tie One On does it). It’s a bit tedious to sort thru over 200 photos–at least on my crappy computer it is. I can’t believe how insanely popular this is–great job.

  2. Great job,Claire. Don’t they all look amazing. So much fun. Thanks again.

  3. Yay! I joined in for the first time, and it worked! May I say I am very proud to be in such wonderful company, and nice work Claire.

  4. I love the first day of the month and finding out what the new themes are! This should be fun!

  5. says:

    Where’s yours Claire? I don’t see it anywhere; perhaps I’m missing it?

  6. great idea to put them on flickr. love that fabric!

  7. ooo, I love the theme. I made my son a flannel quilt from the Li’l Buckaroos fabric, I’m sure I have some still lying around! I’ve been missing MOS for a few months so will hop back..

  8. thanks Claire for the July MOS, my son and I really enjoyed participating and are looking forward to creating a new softie for the “Wild West” showdown.

  9. Hehehe! I knew you would eventually be doing a Western theme after you emailed me about my Alice! I don’t suppose I could just re-enter her, could I? Noooo, I will have to make a cowpoke friend for her of course! Yeehaw!

  10. I’m excited to see all of your creations for this month’s theme.

  11. Boohooh! I got labeled NIPSA! I feel like a criminal! Still glad I found out. This way I may be able to solve that problem. Thanks for the info! Boohooh! Sniff
