Monkey Business

For Christmas, I made monkeys for my Godchildren using the Molly the Monkey pattern from mmmcrafts. Let me introduce Pete the Pirate, Moxie the chic Monkey, Princess Piala, and the fairy Faye. I’m really impressed with how well they turned out.

Green Elephants

Inspired by a quilt from Red Pepper Quilts, I decided to make my own version and spice it up a little. After discovering applique, I can’t seem to get enough of it. I borrowed the elephant template from Little Birdie Secrets.

This quilt is in progress:

Monkey Quilt

For Christmas, I made my Goddaughter, Raven, a monkey quilt, because she is my little monkey. I saw this monkey quilt and fell in love with it. It’s just too cute. So I decided to make my own. I drew a monkey, scanned it into the computer, and printed it. Then I cut all the pieces apart and traced them on the different fabrics. I purchased an applique book at a rummage sale for a quarter and used it to teach myself how to hand applique. The stitch I use is ridiculously easy. I didn’t want to deal with folding over the edges of each piece (before I appliqued it) so I used Stop-Fray stuff to keep the edges from fraying. After piecing it, I hand-quilted around the monkeys and around each block. In the empty blocks I quilted bananas and stars.
