If you’ve been following the Chinese zodiac, you will know that 2016 is the year of the monkey. In honor of this year’s animal we decided to make this adorable DIY monkey felt stuffie! As you may have noticed, our illustrator Krista has a real knack for designing these precious DIY kid’s toys. Take a look at our DIY Felt Dog, Felt Owl, and Felt Penguin to make a whole set of these cuties!
You can find all of the tools and materials needed listed on the right hand side of this post and the PDF template with step-by-step tutorial to make this DIY monkey stuffie, complete with his own little banana treat. Too adorable!
