I made this monkey from this pattern:

although I diverged a lot.  The body is silk chenille, the face and hands are silk chainette.  I stitched the mouth and nose with my hand-reeled silk.

Love the monkey, but i was sure he would be great! 

I do have one question... 

if pics 5, 6, and 7 are Hear no evil, See on evil, & Speak no evil, what exactly is pic #8?

Love is a battlefield, but you don't have to dress like it.

Please remember: I have a collection of needles and a history of violence

Number 8 is "Git Yer Hands Off That!"


Screw no evil? :) Just a guess.

That would have have been a nice warning monkey to have in my mid-twenties.
