Monkeying about!

I managed to finish one of the felt toys I cut out yesterday.  My secret commission for the 'ballet brother'.  I hope he likes it!

The recipient is a bit of a funky dude, he's only about 7 but with a gelled mohican and wearing a Rolling Stones T-shirt on Saturday, I reckon this shouldn't jeopardize his 'coolness'.

I based him on a pattern I found here, reducing the size, making him out of felt and blanket stitching him together with a little stuffing for good measure.  Finished fella is about 5" top to toe.

One down, a few more to go!


  1. He is adorable - off to look at the link.

  2. he is soooooooooooooooooo cute! I love him!!!

  3. He's a dude! Love the pose you've got him in too :)

  4. Love that face on him. Sort of the way Helen looks at me a lot these days!

  5. Oh, man, ballet-brother will surely adore him!! 7 isn't too old to be loving a cuddly. Especially when he's a monkey and a scowly-faced funny one to boot! My Dad would say he's got a face like a boxer chewing a wasp. *g* Love it and so shall he, I know several of my younger 8 year old Cubs that would happily rehome him!

  6. he is a super little monkey and i'm 43 and would happily have him come and stay. !xx
