The monkey is one of the very first ones I ever made. Jer has had it for a couple years now. I gave it a little "face lift"- straightened out the eyes, re-sewed the mouth, fluffed up all the stuffing that had gotten lumpy, etc. I made the pattern for the tunic, cloak, and light saber. I guess you could say this is the prototype or test run of The Star Wars Sock Monkey! I plan to make another one (or more, if people like them) for the shop, now that I know what changes I want to make to the outfit.
Enough chatter, on with the pictures!
"The force is strong with this one..."
"I sense something, a presence I've not felt since......."
"No. Leave them to me. I will deal with them myself."
"Impressive. Most impressive."
"No! I am your father!"
Isn't he cute, in an ominous, dangerous sort of way?
**Yes, I do realize and in fact proudly proclaim, I am a nerd!
