I just finished a couple of things for a friend that just had a baby boy and decorated with a jungle theme...

Monkey & Elephant!

I got the pattern for the elephant bib here:  http://crochetcafepatterns.blogspot.com/2005/04/elephant-pacifier-bib.html
The cutest thing about it is that it holds a pacifier in its trunk!

I got the pattern for the monkey here:  http://quesera.ojaru.jp/osaru-pattern.html
And, I think the monkey is just too cute!  I stitched the baby's first initial onto the monkey's shirt.  I left off the suggested mouth because I think that the implied O mouth (made by the circular stitches  - not sure if you can see it in the pics) is better than any mouth I could stitch on.

I'm so bored making the same things for all my friends that are having baby boys!  This project was different and I loved it Cheesy  Anyone else have good ideas for 'alternative' crocheted objects for babies?  I've still got 4 baby boy projects to go!

I am SOOOO happy you posted this. Not only are these two items adorable, but believe it or not, I have been frantically searching the internet for the pattern for that EXACT monkey all day today. A girl in a local S-n-B group made it but couldn't remember where she found the pattern. THANK you for posting the link!!! You saved my butt

I'm glad my post was userful Wink  The monkey pattern is so cute!  I was thinking of trying it in a different, non-natural color next - I think purple will look great Cheesy
