Bubbles the Yo-Yo Monkey

Another 1st in a long line.  I have never made a stuffed animal.  I have repaired many destroyed dog toys in my day, but never made one from scratch.  I know you are looking at the monkey & thinking it’s all yo-yo’s, but the head had 11 pieces to it. 


All in all, it was fun.  A quick 1/2 day project for me since all the yo-yo’s were already made. 

The pattern by Indygo Junction uses the large & jumbo sizes of the Clover Yo-Yo makers, but also includes templates if you don’t want to make them with the (awesome timesaving) gadgets.  Also included in the pattern is a completely stuffed animal pattern.


I can see a where’s Bubbles game in the future!  Here he is hanging out on the quilt rack outside.DSCN3616
