Yeah...the hoody is at least loosely inspired by the flying monkey costume from the movie - were I any good at direct translations of anything I'd be working for the UN
Here's a pic of the full front with my son in it. He wants one now too.
It was a spur of the moment flash of inspiration that came to me at the fabric store to make it so when I was buying I was going by my memory image of the costume and not the real deal. I completely forgot about the white bits which would have made it more obviously flying monkey-esque. I'd never really worked with polar fleece before this project. It was very forgiving in ways I hadn't imagined and unforgiving in ways I thought I had covered. I think next time I choose to applique fleece to fleece I'll use quilter's spray adhesive or something to stabilize it. If you lot have any suggestions in that capacity, I would appreciate them!
