I am sure that most of you have seen the fabulous toy patterns over at Melly and Me. I attended a quilt in last year with my sister's quilting group The Willows, and they had a few stallholders there selling different items. I was pleasantly surprised to see that one stall had Melly and Me patterns and I just couldnt resist Magoo. I love monkey toys, let me tell you. He wasnt too hard to make either which is always great when you need to stuff legs and arms. I had cut him out quite a few months ago now and last night I sat down and completed him. Isabelle loves him and I adore his fabric. I dont know what the fabric is called, just that I bought the last of the paisley print on the bolt. I am one girl who loves paisley prints, although not those weird garish tones all together. This one is quite pretty. I used a fat quarter for his shorts and tummy and ear patches. Isabelle asked if she could take his photo for him to put up on the blog and I think she did a wonderful job. As you can see he is sitting on my bookshelf which holds some of my sewing and knitting books!
