Anyone up for another Halloween monkey amigurumi? We are!!!
I’ve been waiting many months just to post this one particular Halloween monkey amigurumi. This is actually the original Halloween monkey that we made. But Halloween’s the funnest time of the year, so why not just go all out and make a whole boatload of them?
This one took quite a while to make. It was me who kept pestering our crocheter to make this monkey. I was looking forward to making this the most! So I couldn’t help myself and changed a few things about it. I painted one eye all white and the other with a single red pupil to give it a more creepy (but cute!) look. Changed the mouth, added a bunch of stitch work, and cut out the shape and face of a jack-o-lantern for the chest piece.
Cutting out those tiny triangles and teeth on that pumpkin shaped chest piece was a lot of work but it still came out okay. It was like carving a real pumpkin but out of felt!
I really wanted this Halloween monkey amigurumi to have two distinct personalities. The left side (picture above) is the cute and happy side and the right side (below) is the scarier/crazier side. So if you look at these two pictures separately, they’ll look like two different monkeys! All in one! :D
And here are our side views~
It looks like our Halloween monkey amigurumi is growing out of the…..Heart of Darkness!! Hahaha kidding~ Yes, I read the book…but don’t remember what happened. Hehe.
Its castle. Very small castle–and yes, it can support the weight of an entire monkey! Such a strong little fortress its got there.
And now with a friend! Pumpkin minion?
I was so happy about making this Halloween monkey amigurumi that I even took the time to paint a background for it. Don’t know if you can see it, but there’s actually purple bats flying in the background. I also painted the little fortress/castle-like thing too. That was actually a white styrofoam box that housed six eggs in its nice foamy grasp. Putting this set together took a whole afternoon! But I’m pleased with the end result. Still more monkeys to come!
Sweet dreams everyone! Hope you all enjoyed our Halloween monkey amigurumi!!
