I quite often get asked to make special orders. This is one I did this year for a lovely lady who had a granddaughter due to arrive in July and the babies’ 5 year old sister. Her daughter and son in law loved monkeys and the children rooms where teal and pink so after a couple of phone calls and sending of photos of patterns and fabric back and forth we decided on these two Monkey patterns with a monogram added to personalise them.
The first monkey pattern is from a Brisbane based designer trading as “funky friends factory” and is called Shelby the “no sock” sock monkey. I used Riley Blake Sweetcakes fabric and pure wool felt.
The second monkey was from another Australian based designer trading as Melly and Me and we chose “Mimi” to make, again using Riley Blake Sweetcaskes fabric and pure wool felt.
I absolutely loved creating these little guys and hope they will be forever loved!
