this is Monkey Poppins, who was made for the Sock Monkey Swap Rd 9




sans coat, with bowtie and "buttons" from the scrapbooking section
props to my mom for the blush suggestion!



all the accessories: carpet bag, daisy hat, parrot-head umbrella & hand-knotted scarf (that's not a typo)

i had grand plans of making a working umbrella but ran out of time/gumption  Smiley
the base is a hat pin, with polymer-clay parrot head, painted with acrylics.

her little bun:


coat exterior & lining:



i also included this picture in the package, as my swap partner is a Doctor Who fan as well.

She's lovely. All her fabulous accessories and her wonderful fully lined coat. Your swap partner is very lucky to receive such a wonderful creation.

This is an amaziningly intricate and well-done piece; well done!  The stitching/cut of all the materials is very clean and professional looking--this is the type of thing I could see sitting in a display case at a high-end toy shop.  I wouldn't want to try making a working umbrella either--that'd be pretty tricky to accomplish on this smaller scale.
