I made this Suffolk puff, or Yo-Yo’s, monkey using a updated version of an old pattern. This is something that my Nan used to do with my mum when she was a little girl, so we did this one together (mainly because I’m still honing my sewing machine skills) He was made for my nephew and I loved it so much he nearly didn’t reach him.
So, I’m still a bit pants on a sewing machine. This is why I needed my wonderfully crafty mums help. While I was preparing my fabrics and wadding she was cleverly creating the cutest monkey head and fabulously long curly tail.
Once on, the feet (also created by my mum) were sewn in place to hold the legs together. The same was then done for the arms. Finally, his tail was then sewn in place and he was done 🙂
