Wow, thanks everybody! Comments are now closed for the giveaway.
Mikey Monkey is now in the shop! Above is the first page of the 15-page boy-centric Mikey Monkey PDF pattern. It includes color pictures, step-by-step detailed instructions, a boatload of illustrated diagrams for each step, and of course, the pattern pieces. I've learned a few things since I wrote the Molly pattern, and I've made some adjustments here and there for easier assembly.
I hope this is in plenty of time for your Christmas makings. If you already have the Molly pattern but would love to make the boy version and these accessories without all the guess-work, then this pattern is for you!
Here is the basic Mikey, above.
He has two options for his Look. One is the more debonair tie/collar combo, paired with a jaunty newsboy hat, above.
The other fashion option is a striped t-shirt with a baseball cap, for the more casual monkey on-the-go.
Here's the back of the cap.
And included also with the pattern is a pirate play set, with pirate hat, sword and eye patch. Arrrr!
And of course, the tennis shoes. And if Molly wants to play, go ahead and let her! All Mikey's accessories fit her too.
To mark the debut of the Mikey pattern, I am also having my first ever sale at the shop. All my softie patterns will be 20% off until Monday the 23rd.
And oh, yes. I nearly forgot. I'd like to celebrate by giving away two Mikey patterns! If you are interested, leave ONE comment with your email address on this post. I'll be giving the patterns away via random number generator first thing on November 18th. See you back here then.
P.S. If your monkey makin' won't wait until Wednesday and you want to get started with the pattern, I can refund you the purchase price if you should be one of the lucky winners!
