I bought a book about making stuffed friends and decided to try it out with some old sweaters as material. The result of my first attempt at a stuffed animal is this brown sweater monkey. His had is on a little crooked and he's certainly not symmetrical, but I bet my 1.5 yr old loves him. He is very soft thanks to the wash wear on the sweaters and insides of poly-fil. If she decides that monkey is a girl, monkey might get a custom dress!
