Okay, so I have gone a tad mad over monkeys...visited one of my favourite quilt stores yesterday planning to buy some fabric to make a bag for Whitney for her birthday and ended up with fabric to make a funky monkey quilt instead! (Sorry Whit, the bag will come eventually - the monkeys were just too cute!) So, this is the fabric I selected to make they quilt - for Oscar to snuggle under when he watches telly...I have super easy pattern made using a quick strip cutting and piecing technique. I haven't done it before, but so far it is very quick and easy - just what I need to fit in between feeds and tending to little ones.
While I was in the shop I came across this pattern to make a cute monkey! How cool is he?? I just couldn't resist, so that came home with me too...a few projects to keep me busy and sane for the next little while!
In a monkey mood last night I found a few sites online with instructions to make sock monkeys. They are made out of a pair of socks! Have been looking at these cute little things for awhile now, but never got around to making them so now that monkeys have taken over our house, I will have a go at making some of them soon. (Can you tell that I haven't made anything in aaaages and am having withdrawls!!!)
P.S. Anyone know where I can buy some funky socks??
