Time for the side views…
I spent a long time on this mummy monkey amigurumi. I pretty much had free rein over what to do with this particular monkey amigurumi so I went crazy with it!
The one thing that took up most of my time was the one eyeball. It took me an entire day just to paint it like that. First I had to paint the entire eye red, then yellow, red again, yellow, and then finally the black pupil. That’s not the end of it though! I still had to wait for all the layers of paint to dry and then I could finally go over all of it with clear nail polish to give it that shiny, glossy finish.
Wrapping this monkey also took a long time. I was cleaning out my sink cabinet one day and found this plain white t-shirt and thought, “hey, I could use this!” So I cut up the entire thing into one very long strip and wrapped it all around the monkey. I got really lazy so instead of cutting the strip into shorter ones, I just used the same long strip to wrap the entire monkey. I only glued a few spots and somehow they stayed! Yay.
Our mummy monkey amigurumi has friends too!
At first, this mummy monkey amigurumi was all white and had no red bloody spots on it. It just didn’t look scary enough somehow so I couldn’t help myself any longer and just splotched it all over with red paint. But even then, I still don’t think it’s scary enough… But I’m still satisfied with the end product!
Hope you like our Halloween mummy monkey amigurumi!!
