Long-term followers might remember (or maybe not, as it was two years ago!) that I made this pink monkey for myself. It was around the time my nephew was born and I'd always had in my head that I must make a blue one for him. I struggle to bring myself to make the same thing twice, though, so it's taken me all this time to do it.
I decided the time was right, as whenever he comes round he clocks the pink one and goes straight for it! I felt he must have one of his own for his birthday this year.
I gave the monkey a top with a 'T' on it - my nephew's initial. Whereas my pink one is happier in her birthday suit! (I always thought of the pink one as a boy actually, but she seems like a girl in these pics)
A friend at last!
But wait... what's this? He's climbed onto the dresser!
What a pair of monkeys!
I think they might have got into the Christmas sherry!
(Ok, I got a bit carried away taking pictures of the pair of them!!)
The pattern is a great free one from here.
I hope my nephew loves his as much as he seems to love mine!
