For those of you who were wondering–no, we did not forget about the month of November and yes, we have a Thanksgiving monkey amigurumi just for it. Hope everyone stuffed themselves silly with lots of yummy foods during the holidays!
For our Thanksgiving monkey amigurumi, we went with the Native American look. We could have gone with the pilgrim look but ultimately decided that a Native American monkey would allow for more decoration. Since we already had a lot of Native American styled props lying around the house, why not use them here?
Doesn’t our Thanksgiving monkey amigurumi look so cozy and right at home with all the props in the background? Sometimes those random souvenirs you buy on trips really come in handy!
By the way, the feathers on its headdress are parakeet feathers! We used to have a couple of parakeets and when it came to cleaning their cage, we’d always have a nice supply of some pretty feathers. We saved up quite a few of them, so that also gave us another reason to make a Native American monkey amigurumi. Yes I know, it should have way more feathers on its headdress, but our parakeets weren’t balding!
Our Thanksgiving monkey amigurumi with its turkey friend. Come to think of it, we didn’t even eat turkey this Thanksgiving… Instead, we ate…….duck. :(
Its face paint is actually red and white nail polish! Could have just used paint, but I didn’t have a paintbrush and plus, I didn’t want to wash it afterwards either. But since nail polish already comes with a brush, it was much more tempting and easy solution to my little dilemma hahaa.
Now our monkey looks tall!
And now it’s short.
Hope you enjoyed looking at our Thanksgiving monkey amigurumi!
