Let’s celebrate Independence Day with a festive Fourth of July monkey amigurumi!!!
Yep, you guessed it! Another monkey to kick off the start of a new month. No, we will not stop until we have completed all twelve monkeys for all twelve months of the year. It just wouldn’t be fair or right if we just decided to leave out the rest of the months and their representative monkey amigurumis now would it? :)
So here we have our Fourth of July monkey amigurumi in the signature Uncle Sam pointing at YOU pose. He wants YOU and so does the monkey! Does our monkey successfully resemble the poster in the background? We even tried to coordinate the colors of the monkey to match Uncle Sam’s outfit. We used an off-white colored felt to give the monkey an overall old school look. Of course, to make it more festive we gave it a nice and crazy Fourth of July hat–that was very time consuming and painstaking to make.
This is the top of the hat…very festive right? :D First we crocheted the standard top hat and then cut out strips of white and blue felt which were glued directly onto the hat. Then we used sequin stars to decorate the rest of it. We even included a little bling on his hat with small crystal accents between the stars.
The standard home-made flag. Made possible by the combined efforts of a nice printer, toothpick, and tacky glue!
Our Fouth of July monkey is a very busy little monkey amigurumi. He may look carefree and all, but he’s busily planning away a July 4th celebration on his computer! Yes, an old school computer for an old school monkey.
He’s sending out invitations to his Fourth of July party. Will you be there? Don’t worry, he’ll call you when the meat’s grilling away on his BBQ GrillMaster 7411 in the backyard.
No, he will NOT put down the flag. Even when he’s grilling.
Our Fourth of July monkey amigurumi just loves America that much! <3
