It’s time to get into the Halloween spirit with our witch monkey amigurumi! Yay!!!
We’ve been waiting many months for October to come. Anything Halloween-themed is just so fun and exciting to do! At first we only made one Halloween-themed monkey amigurumi, but then recently decided to make more. Why not, right? As for the other Halloween monkey amigurumis, we’ll keep you posted and up to date so stay tuned!
When it came to making this witch monkey amigurumi, we were stumped on how to make the broom. But then one day when we went to the craft store, we spotted a large wooden/straw broom hanging on a shelf with a lot of other Halloween related decorations. So we went back home, gathered some small twigs from the backyard, cut a wooden chopstick in half, tied the little twigs around it, and there you have it!! Broom!
But anyway, enough about the broom. For this witch monkey amigurumi we really wanted it to look like a witch–unmistakably like a witch. So we used neon green felt for the face, chest, ears and purple yarn for the body. Purple and green–the perfect witch colors right?
This monkey is so fancy too! It even has this nice little witch hat with a pretty little green bow tied around it. Janama’s pretty bow-tying skills. :) If you look closely, the cape isn’t just a regular cape. I had to sit there and cut out tiny triangles from the edges of the cape so that it’d look more witch-like.
Looks like our little witch has a minion–Skeletroll! Witch monkey named it…not me. :] I don’t come up with dumb names like that!
What kind of monkey business are they up to? For some reason the monkey looks a bit evil in the picture above…how cute! We love cute but dangerous things~ :D
There’s much more to come! Hope you enjoyed our Halloween witch monkey amigurumi!
