Today, I will show you how to make the monkey. I made mine basic colors, but you can make yours any color that you want.
Dark Brown Felt (body and head)
Light Brown Felt (face and inner ears)
White Felt (outer eyes)
Black Felt (inner eyes and nose)
Small Amount of Polyfill Stuffing
Step 1. Make a template. I looked through several clip-art monkeys for ideas and then drew up a template. I am not artsy at all, so you may want to come up with your own ideas. Here is pdf file of the monkey template that I used.
Step 2. Using your template, cut the monkey body, head, face, and inner ears out of the felt. I did find that it was a little easier to cut out the template if I pinned the template to the felt and then cut around it.
Step 4. Lightly stuff the monkey's body.
Step 5. Once you are happy with the amount of stuffing, sew the hole shut.
Step 6. Follow the same process for the monkey's head.
Step 7. Sew the monkey's head to the body.
Step 7. Glue or sew on the eyes. I did not make a template for the eyes, because they are just ovals. However, you might choose to use safety eyes or googly eyes or whatever you want.
Step 8. Make the mouth. I just drew on the mouth with a Sharpie, but you could also embroider it or even make it out of felt.
