Funky Monkey

Posted on

I have had this pattern sitting in my stash for awhile now and finally dragged it out to try.

I have made other patterns by Melly & Me before and adored them. This one not so !

I even had to contact Mel as there are markings missing from the pattern pieces. And going by the reply I received she has been selling this pattern for years & I am the first to bring it to her attention!

Anyways onto Magoo…………..or in our house Mike the Monkey!

Here is the finished result ………


I ended up doing his arms differently as the whole slip stitching them to the outside is painful so I positioned them in the side seams & stitched that way, I also encased the legs into the seams rather than hand baste them & have an exposed seam. Next time(if there is one) I will leave the limbs unstuffed, stitch them into the body seams & stuff once turned (leaving an opening for stuffing of course )

He is missing his tuft of hair & whites on his eyes simply because he has been pilfered by the teenage son who remarkably resembles Mike with his own long limbs & tuft of wayward hair!

Onto the next pattern………………..
