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

kewl.... I work in my church's nursery as a teacher, and we always have them go on a hunt for the "purple monkey" since our church is HUGE (it's on tv w/ Pastor Sam Rijfkogel if you watch it.....so i'm gonna try this w/ purple yarn so the kids'll have there own purple monkey!!

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
