My kids have these "photo shoots' With their monkeys and this is just one of them...
My son ADORES monkeys! I shed a lot of blood sweat & tears trying to create this pattern for fabric as it was inspired by a knitted monkey and I didn't know how to knit last year.
I experimented on a few, getting my pattern "just right" (I'm still tweaking). I've learned an enormous amount just by creating this pattern.
It hurt my brain because I'd never made a pattern or sewn a stuffed animal before last Christmas when I made our first monkey for my son "Z".
I have a site set up to sell them, the only problem is, as soon as I make them, someone already has "dibs" on it!
Oh to sit & sew all day!
