I have a weakness for monkeys. More precisely toy monkeys or monkey fabric. This must be genetic, since my grandmother loves monkeys as well and has a great collection of monkey knick-knacks. It skipped a generation, though. My mother was an avid collector of everything cat-themed.
My monkey love started to get serious a couple of years ago and I haven't got a really large collection. (You already met Chappy sporting the fabric basket ;-)) I'm more for stuffed animals than knick-knacks and try not to amass too much stuff. This book was a real eye-opener, though. I LOVE IT!!! I can't stress the genius, beauty and cuteness of this book enough!
Here are some of my favourites:
Ask this one for advice, he'll know something clever to say!
I bet this monkey knows how to tell a good joke!
Looking for fashion advice? Just ask her!
This one decided to go as Baby Jane for Halloween!
They break my heart!
So you can imagine that I couldn't resist when I came across this fabric collection online.
Or these socks including instructions!!! Now I can make my very own sock monkey! Yay! :-)
I'll only have to decide what it should look like and get some other projects finished, first ...
