I have made a few softies now and every one I make I learn a little something that makes them not only easier to make, but more tailored to the two sweet babies I make them for.
Here's the monkey I made yesterday:
Here's a picture of the rattle disk I used. I got it from While She Naps and is made specifically for use in stuffed animals for babies. It's very safe and secure.
I also added a tail to my softie using an additional arm and cutting a slit in the back side of the monkey.
Omg this is so adorable. Love this cute little monkey.
How CUTE is this!! Way to go grandma, they little ones are going to love them!
Cathy...your monkey is about as cute as they come. I love him and can't wait to see take two!
Oh my gosh Cathy! I LOVE this monkey! I will be Csing this for sure,it's perfect and so darn adorable! Love the shaker and the rattle ,although the youngest here is two. Love the tail too! Can't wait to make a monkey now. Enjoy your vacation . Oh, after you asked me about the stitch kit......I bought it,so now you can come over and cut some.
This is amazingly cute, and such a wonderful keepsake toy. Made with love, and I know it will be enjoyed with love as well. Love your idea of adding an extra arm as a tail.
OMG Cathy this is adorable ! I love this little guy and I bet Jaxon will too! I can't wait to see your "girl" version of this cutie! I'm already picturing a hot pink monkey with a bow on her head! Great pic too!
I love this! Can you walk me through how you did the tail? Not sure how to affix it. Also, going to go look for the die you used for the monkey's face. I love it. I haven't seen a monkey done before with that kit. I'm in love!
