Curious Georgina

Project info
Monkey by Chimu Hamada
Hooks & yarn
4.0 mm (G)

I kind of wish I’d stuffed the head a bit more firmly. As I was stitching it shut, it felt that more stuffing would’ve been too much, but now that I’ve woven in the tail in a billion different directions (i.e. made it impossible to re-open), I feel that it’s a tad bit less stuffed than I’d like. Oh well. It’s not a big issue.

Another thing I’d possibly change if I made it again would be to make the body a little chubbier. It’s not bad as it is, but it’s definitely on the scrawny side. (g)

Made a ruffled tutu (with the very helpful project notes of abigailvr) and a small bow to complete the look. ;o)

I agonized over the face, as always, and also as always, I’m not completely satisfied, but it’s ok. A handmade toy will usually look handmade, and that’s as it should be.

I think the recipient was satisfied. ;o)
