DIY Monkey

Beginner seamstresses and sewers need not fear! All you’ll need for whipping up this project is a simple running stitch and blanket stitch. We’ve named him Bongo the Monkey, but feel free to get creative with naming your own animal friend. This could even be a great project for introducing your little ones to the fundamentals of sewing. So grab your materials and your favorite kiddo and start planning an afternoon of crafting!
