When I first posted the schedule for the Sew Ready to Play series, I was supposed to be the last post of the series… But… Honestly, I think it was the Saturday, maaaybe it was the Sunday, after I posted the schedule that I ran across this totally great post that fit perfectly into the series! As soon as I saw this project, I knew it needed to be a part of the series! I emailed Heather and Rose from Sew Stylish Boutique and asked if they’d like to join us and they did!! Yea!!
So let’s welcome Sew Stylish Boutique to I’m Feelin’ Crafty!
Monkeys in a barrel toys are classic. I loved them when I was a kid, my parents played with them and now my kids do too. One night I was thinking about making something for a friend who just had a baby boy and the idea came to me. I made this cute monkey toy for him. I took pictures of it to show you.
You can get the PDF pattern for the monkey here . (note; This is my first PDF ever and the paper got wrinkled because my baby grabbed it from me before putting it in the scanner.)
To turn the monkey right side out is tricky and so I show how I did it.
First take and turn the hands into the arms and push them down as far as you can.
