Yay, my first commission, I got a whopping $25 for this fella.





Unfortunately, thats all the pictures I have that aren't [too] horrible. He has tags sewn on his elbows and knees, as well as some on his tail. And tag ears and bowtie, mostly for looks. The lady who commissioned me said that babies like different textures and feelings, and that the little boy this was going to really likes the feel of the soft silky tags on clothes. The sock is fuzzy and soft too. All handstitched and whatnot. Not the best lookin monkey, but he sure feels nice Grin

very nice. i like the way you stitched the eyes on. whenever i make a monkey for a young child i agonize over how to stitch the eyes. i usually emboider round eyes - but i like yours much better. i love the way you worked the tags in too - especially the ears. i'll bet he loves it.
