A Quick Birthday Present

MONKEYS!  Okay, so it's two days before your nephew's birthday... thankfully you remembered in time... want to make something handmade, but still cool to a five year old (and something that will hopefully be semi-useful, and something that won't last for 15 seconds before he outgrows it...

MOCHI MOCHI to the rescue!!  I got this book a while ago and have been wanting to try nearly everything in it for a long time... this gave me the perfect excuse!  While I didn't use the Cascade, I used Berocco's ReMix (I like the nubby quality, and I thought that it would be appropriate for a little boy) instead, the patterns was simple and easy to follow.  Not to mention, AWESOME!!  Who doesn't like monsters that look like they are eating feet?!?!?

Here's how they came out! And while I think I put the little ears a little too far back, I DO like the buttons instead of the embroidered eyes... :O)
