My aunt and I are really close.
She's basically an older sister to me (we're actually closer in age than she and my mom are).
I was pretty broken hearted when she moved away to NC a week ago.
This past Saturday was her birthday so I wanted to make her something.
She loves monkeys and these are her favorite colors.
(It didn't hit me until later that his colors are similar to Boots the Monkey from Dora...D'oh!)
He's 11" tall (although most of that is legs, lol).
One day I'll get it through my thick skull that I am not an embroiderer.
The whole process is a struggle for me.
I curse as I thread the needle.
I curse as I attempt to pull the thread through the fabric.
In the end, I'm all mad and frizzy haired
(yes, my hair gets frizzy when I'm mad. I think it's my super power.)
I think the whole process makes me not care for any creature I attempt to embroider lol.
But I don't hate how he looks either.
I'm sure my aunt will love him. :)
My favorite part about this little guy is his body.
It just fits so perfectly in my hand.
I'm really excited to make a little doll with the same body.
I think she'll be the perfect little companion doll.
Anyway, happy monday!
What are you working on this week?
