Babies and Kids Love Them!
These monkeys are so cute! Make one up in fabric to match a baby quilt for an extra special gift. Older kids (and many adults!) will love them too.
Hook and loop tape (like Velcro) allows the hands to stick together so the monkeys can “hug” just about anything (you may want to loosely stitch the hands together for small babies, as Velcro can be scratchy). The happy faces are embroidered, although the eyes could be done with fusible applique.
Brighter colors and just about any fabric style will be darling. You could even create a bit of patchwork for the body.
The finished monkeys, from Xanthe patterns, are about 19″ long from the top of the head to the soles of the feet.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
