Monkey goodies

The parcel I sent for the monkey swap should be arriving at its destination any day now, so I think I'll show you what I sent. It's a secret swap, so the recipient won't know to look here for her goodies anyway. And I just want to show you!

I made a sock monkey! Are you surprised??

I think this little strawberry lover is a girl monkey, don't you?
And to keep her company on the trip I added a few little monkey buttons:

Do you recognise the material I used to cover the buttons? It's what I used for the lining of H's birthday book cover.

I felt quite pleased with my little parcel when I sent it off, but now I'm not so sure. Today I saw Sarah at paper-and-string's post about the monkey swag she has received. She got some sweets, a wind-up monkey and 3 (three!!) sock monkeys! Oh dear. I do hope the woman who gets my lowly offering is not too disappointed...

  1. Thank you so much for my wonderful surprise. I love strawberry monkey and the buttons are lovely. I'm looking forward to making something with the buttons pride of place. Strawberry monkey is settling in well. :-) You can see some pictures over on my blog: http://woollywotnots.wordpress.com/2009/06/10/monkey-swap-received/
