~ a little monkey for my little monkey ~


I crocheted this little monkey for my little monkey James.  Actually, James is not really all that little - he's only about a foot and a half shorter than me.  He's only 6 years old though, so he's still my 'little' monkey. 

I found the pattern for this 'little bigfoot monkey' on the blog 'Amigurumi To Go!'.  She has lots of other ami patterns there you can browse thru and they're all very cute.  

Have a great day everyone.  :)

    1. Thanks Barbara. If I have to be honest, no - I really didn't enjoy crocheting it. There's just too many parts and the parts are small so I had a hard time with my fingers holding onto everything. The sewing was a pain too. James will love it though, so it will all be worth the trouble. :)

  6. Soooo cute, Debi! I'm sure your little monkey will love it. I'm with you on the making of these things though. They're adorable, but can be a pain to work with. All the tiny things to sew together. Anyhoo, you did an awesome job! :)

  8. Soooo cute!! :) I find amigurumi cute but difficult to work with because of small parts as you say. My daughter gets excited seeing those and insists on creating one for her. I feel I am doing injustice to her with such excuses. Perhaps, I must scale the pattern to a bigger size and then try. I hope it is possible to scale.
