I’ve realised that I can’t be great at everything, when I attempt certain things they just seem to go bad, no matter how much I persevere or how big I dream. I can sew and make plenty of things, I just simply cannot make toys. This little guy is proof.
I wanted to make a little monkey toy that was light-weight, and had skinny arms and legs for Aidan to grab and chew on. I altered the Black Apple doll pattern in hopes that it would simplify the process. Oh, I was so wrong.
I’m not even going to go into how many times I screwed this little guy up but I will tell you that this is my best attempt. My best…*sigh*. Even though my confidence was shattered and he didn’t turn out the way I planned I still painstakingly hand embroidered a face for him. It took up valuable sleep time but I really wanted something handmade by Mumma for Aidan’s first Christmas and I succeeded… just.
