My creative space: monkeying around

 I made this cheeky monkey for my friend's baby - he's the "monkey man" pattern from Fiona Dalton's book Hop Skip Jump: 20 Eco-Friendly Toys to Sew.  His overalls used to be a pillowcase I bought in Putaruru, his face and ear linings are from an old blanket and his body is made from some wool crepe that is a leftover from a dress I made. 

And he has a cheeky patch on the back of his overalls.  He was lots of fun to make - I might have to make another one to monkey around at my place!

Joining in with "My Creative Space" today over here.

Happy Thursday!


  1. Great monkey! I've made two of these too. Such a great gift!

  3. He's just gorgeous! I've made one too for Softies for Mirabell last year! Such a great book too! So many fab things to make hey!

  4. I am certian he will be very loved.
