When your mother is a blogger it opens up new opportunities on special occasions. Yesterday was Mother's Day and I was showered with gifts and love and fun from the kids and my husband. One thing that I hadn't been counting on was a handmade gift from my daughter and husband that turned out to be 2 gifts.
My daughter knows that I love monkeys and decided that she would like to tackle a diy project. A monkey for me made by hand. How awesome is that? Even better is that they were thoughtful enough to photograph the steps so that I would have a blog post. Best family EVER!
Cotton Balls for stuffing
Fluffy Pipe Cleaner
Trace the shape onto fabric and cut 2 layers
Pin 2 sides together
Sew 2 sides leaving a hole for stuffing
Stuff with cotton balls. Us a pen to push the cotton into the arms and legs
Sew eyes and a nose and stitch the opening closed. Sew on the tail et voila! It's monkey love!
Now I just need to come up with a name for the little guy.
