a little favorite children's birthday gift we love to make/give...
beginning with a pre-made sock monkey
(or you could create one of your own!)
we then choose coordinating fabrics and thread...
1. cut a bandanna/scarf like shape
2. cut child's initials from coordinating fabrics
3. iron to a fusible web
4. iron to bandanna/scarf
5. stitch around letters
then simply tie to the monkey's neck...
and now he is ready to just " monkey around "!
(and be enjoyed by the birthday girl!)
note: for little boys we like to choose a stuffed dog or other animal
and create a similar monogrammed bandanna using "boyish" fabrics.
