My Monkey is Four!

REMINDER: No shop hours this week!
The shop in my home will be closed Tuesday June15th and Thursday June 17th!

Today is my son's 4th Birthday. And he is napping (we've had a busy morning) so I thought I would share a few projects.
When my son saw me open a box of fabric a few months ago, he squealed in delight.
He loves monkeys.
And he asked me to make him something with the monkeys.
It took me a few months, but I am FINALLY finished! And just in time for his birthday!

I started with a quilt. Just some basic squares and strips. It was really easy, except for the quilting. Grrrrrr.
I have offically quit trying to quilt on my regular sewing machine.
Too many tears.
He will be able to looks past all the tucks. All he cares about are the monkeys!

And of course he needs a monkey pillow!

I would say pillowcases are my favorite projects. Easy, fast, and adorable!
I just laid out a pillowcase on my fabric and cut it the same size.
Like I said, SEW easy!

Blanket and pillow. The perfect combination for a good rest.

Yup, he looks pretty comfy!

SO CUTE! How I wish I could make one so I could cuddle a newborn around the monkey with my monkey background that I got from you! LOVE IT!
