I always loved the look of the Little Kahootz longies and was very sad to see her stop making them.
I love me some sock monkeys and those are super cute, but like you said, it's really similar to the Kahootz pants and the sock monkey crankypants and all the other people making monkey butt pants. While there is a good amount of idea copying/inspiring in the WAHM cloth diapering community, it's fine as long as you give it your own "take", e.g. different color schemes, different expression, something unique that the other ones don't have, etc etc. I think it is wonderful that we have so many unique ideas in the WAHM community and that everyone can make a sock monkey that is their own! Great job, mama!

I totally agree they need to have something a little different or unique and I think the blue and navy are lacking that (the red and brown is similar too but it is the classic color combo and I wouldn't want to mess with that)....I am going to do some more brainstorming and see if I can come up with a different "boyish" color scheme.....maybe red black and white/grey would be a good replacement!!
