The Monkey: From Design to Creation

Now that my store is up and running I need to get some more products out there. I’ve been working on a little crochet monkey (amigurumi) toy as of late and I finally think he is done.

I start my designs on my iPad on a brilliant app called Paper53. It’s great for quick sketches, and I can save them in a little in-app book and download them when needed.

My Monkey started off life like this:

I love the multi coloured wool. But I might also offer him in plain cotton colours too….
