Book week monkey.

This week has been national book week in school and the children finished the week off by going to school as their favourite story book animal, My son could have gone as something which I already had like a crocodile or a sheep even a goat but no he wanted to be a monkey, so I set about making said monkey costume and for my first from scratch costume i was quite pleased with it.

So this is Willy the Wimp he is a monkey that has been picked on by the bigger monkeys, one day he decides that enough is enough and he goes to classes to learn how to not be a wimp, with a healthy diet and some exercise Willy develops some fantastic muscles ( see six pack on the monkey above) and all the mean monkeys are scared of him and they leave him alone.

I used polly cotton fabric probably should have been something thicker but that was all I could get, I used my acrylic paints to add the lighter tummy and used my precious SU card stock for the mask ( hope he looks after it!!)

Card stock: Close to cocoa, Creamy Caramel and confetti white,

Thanks for stopping by!

Love it our kids had the same thing luckily for me Ella decided she wanted to go as the sugarplum fairy, so all I had to do was stick her tutu on her a pair of wings and her Ballet shoe's, even better Jasmine wanted to be Anne from famous 5 and Lewis wanted to go as Lewis.
