    Baby Willa's monkey toy

    I tried this before, but couldn't get the picture to post. So I am trying again. Baby Willa loves monkeys and so do I, so I made her this monkey toy with ribbons. Sewed around it several times to make sure the ribbons did not pull out.
    I hope you like it!

    It takes real skill to choke on air, fall upstairs and trip over completely nothing .... I have that skill!!!

    Have read to use the bag such as in a box of cereal to make the toys that make the crinkling sound.
    . My concern is what happens if those toys are laundered. Any thoughts on that? Or how to include a bell or "rattle" sound?

    very cute. need to make one too.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I just made one and put a foil tea wrapper in between the fabric layers for crinkle sounds when touched. I have washed it and dried it in my dryer and it came out fine.

    I must be exceedingly dumb, but what makes that round circle a "monkey"? signed, "not getting it".

    Zoom in on the fabric which is the very popular monkey fabric we've seen lately.

    Here is a pic of a "taggie" I recently made for a baby shower gift. The mother decided on a jungle/wild animal theme room and the quilt I made does not go with that theme at all. So I made this taggie to give as well. I used the liner from inside cereal boxes. It is safe for baby to chew on and it washes and dries very well. I made a couple for our grandson and he loved the noise it made.
