With lots of new additions to my extended family in the last couple of years, I decided to try and get ahead for Christmas this year ( yes I know it is early!) by making some soft toys. I found just what I wanted in the new ‘Tilda’s Toy Box’ book.
If you haven’t come across the book yet – it is full of lovely projects aimed specifically at children (although there is a lovely needle case design that I wouldn’t mind!).
I settled on a hook monkey, which not only looked cute – but I thought I could get one finished pretty quickly. So I set to work this afternoon and have managed to cut out, sew and stuff all the elements ready to be put together tomorrow.
Just a little more stuffing and sewing up gaps – and I think he looks ok. Just another 4 to go!
Happy stitching one and all…
Quick update – here is the finished monkey – just a little rouge to add to his cheeks and 3 more to make!
