Funmigurumi Monkeyroo No. 6: Peanuts

Best Blog Tips

Remember that I told you guys that before long I would wind up making the monkeys with colors all over? Well, I couldn't help myself with this one! I love the old-fashioned patchwork style toys, so whenever the pattern idea I have in mind allows it, I love to make them in that style. Peanuts is somewhat of a combination of that and sock monkey. This toy is also a stash buster, you can use up colorful scraps and make a fun toy to make a child happy! Peanuts is a chubby and stubby monkeyroo, not as "tall" as the others we have made.

"He who has given you life knows your need of food to sustain it. He who created the body is not unmindful of your need of raiment. Will not He who has bestowed the greater gift bestow also what is needed to make it complete?
Jesus pointed His hearers to the birds as they warbled their carols of praise, unencumbered with thoughts of care, for "they sow not, neither do they reap"; and yet the great Father provides for their needs. And He asks, "Are not ye of much more value than they?"
"No sparrow falls without His care,
No soul bows low but Jesus knows;
For He is with us everywhere,
And marks each bitter tear that flows.
And He will never, never, never
Forsake the soul that trusts Him ever." . . .
Lift HIM Up, 73.

Funmigurumi Monkeyroo 5: (Baby Rattle) Amapola

Best Blog Tips

Amapolas are "poppies" in Spanish. The most common are huge red ones. This baby rattle is red and I thought Amapola was a great name for a monkey. Don't you think? It is a fun name and this is a fun toy. It is also very easy to make. I thought to name it "LoudLee" because it "rattles" really well while it bobs its head back and forth, but thought better of it when I ran into Amapola again.

Amapola is a "sockie" monkeyroo, in other words, a sock-monkey-style rattle. Hope you like her!

If you would like the toy to be "stiffer" (not to have a funny wobby head as you rattle it for baby) you may insert a small craft stick that will go from the head to the top of the base cat ball (and you will not use the jingle bells.) The toy will have less sound though.
