NEW photo tutorial for Monkey Sewing Pattern

May 11, 2017 | Blog, Toy-making TIPS & TUTORIALS

I finally made a photo tutorial for my Mitch the Monkey toy pattern! MONKEY-pattern-web

I made him in boring, ‘au-natural’ browns but look at all the fabulous fabrics and colours that my customers have used for their own Mitch Monkey toys!!!


Mitch can be sewn with most fabrics from quilting cottons to fleece and minky and even fake fur for a fun fluffy look!

Now you can follow the step-by-step photos in the photo tutorial as you sew my monkey pattern.


I am gradually catching up on the photo tutorials for my older patterns. I started designing before I even had a digital camera and a camera on my phone so it’s a BIG job…

BUT somebody’s got to do it – LOL!

Till next time, Happy Sewing,
