My friend Mandy is expecting her second son, Maddox Blaze, this August. Instead of a typical shower with toilet paper-diapers and bottles, we all went out to dinner and most importantly, brought presents.
The theme of Maddox's room is monkeys so I decided to take on a new challenge. I found this pattern for this little guy online (for free) and he actually wasn't too complicated. It took me about 6 hours in total and only minor frustration. I used Lion Brand Yarn-Cotton Ease, which is super baby friendly and most importantly washable! There are many different ways you can style this little guy, but I decided to keep it simple and make him the colors of Maddox's room. You can't tell by the picture, but he has a navy blue strip on his shirt.
The only downfall of this pattern is that is requires many different skeins of yarn, which doesn't make him cheap. Although I have more than enough yarn to make him a friend if I ever decide to make another one.
My boyfriend is dying for me to start selling these on Etsy, but honestly after one I am done for awhile.
Congrats to Mandy, Aaron & Keller on their upcoming arrival! : )
