This time….it’s another variation of The Little Bunny Blanket Buddy! I know…when am I going to stop doing these? Perhaps when I’ve created enough animals to create my version of Noah’s Ark (which, by the way sounds like an amazing idea!).
So once again I was waaay behind on giving the new cutie in our extended-but-not-actually-related (but-we-may-as-well-be) family. Whilst his Mum was pregnant with him I asked her what she wanted me to make. Perhaps she had a premonition about her son-to-be, and suggested a monkey.
This was months before the little man was born and here I was months after, still no monkey in hand! I set myself the deadline of a week before seeing him again to make it. As you may know, these patterns are super easy and super quick to make up- that is, if you’re not making a new pattern up or working on call shifts… I left it so last minute, I actually finished off the trim and the embroidered name at their house, juggling between cuddling with the little monkey himself and finishing off the blanket buddy!
I seem to be having trouble with ‘faces’ at the moment. This fella was actually easy peasy to make- it was the face that kept me up at night. I think he’s cuter in real life than in photos, his wonky eye is much less pronounce…I hope!
Here’s the pattern: Monkey Blanket Buddy
Let me know how you get along, and as always- send me any photos of your finished goods!
P.S. I know the elephant blanket buddy should technically come first, but I need to double check the pattern before I release it to you!
