For the Monkey of the Month of June, we would like to introduce to you a Father’s Day Monkey Amigurumi! Mother had her month in May, so it would only be fair for Father to have his special time this month.
Here is the Father’s Day Monkey Amigurumi coming home from a hard day at work. And yes, he carries around a cute little notebook with a heart on it in his suitcase…not by choice of course! It must have been one of his kid’s pranks…
What I like best about this Father’s Day Monkey Amigurumi is his tie, which my sister designed and assembled out of felt. We also experimented with a different color combination this time, using light blue as his face and dark blue for the body. I think it makes him look rather manly and handsome, don’t you??
Mother is excited and ready to go shopping now that Father has come back.
What’s this?! All of a sudden, Father is ambushed by his troublesome son (nicknamed “Chipmunk” for his chubby cheeks) who can’t wait to eat the strawberry shortcake he helped bake with Mother. (Side note: the strawberry shortcake was crocheted out of the same yarn as my Baby Whale Amigurumis. Will post about that later for sure, as I am still working on “baking” other types of cakes!)
Now his daughter joins in on the fun with a Father’s Day present she hopes will not disappoint! The present, by the way, she wrapped last minute right before he came home, anticipating she’d have plenty of time to do so while he does his “sit in the bathroom with newspaper after a hard day’s work” ritual.
“Stop monkeying around and come down from your father’s head, Chipmunk. Let’s celebrate Father’s Day properly!” Mother scolds. And with that, the monkey amigurumi family happily celebrates another lovely Father’s Day.
Happy Father’s Day!!!
