Macy is a stuffed monkey I designed and made, about 2 years ago. She has sat nearly forgotten about, until recently.
Grace rediscovered Macy, this past weekend.
Grace then insisted that Macy needed a sleep mask. Why?
Apparently no child or stuffed monkey is able to sleep without one.
To oblige Grace, I grabbed some felt, fold over elastic, embroidery thread and I made Macy a sleep mask.
Grace then decided that Macy needed to have jammies.
Though I do dabble when it comes to sewing, and though I did succeed in making a coat for Grace last year (the one and only article of clothing I have ever made).
That coat was made from a pattern...and believe it or not, the pattern was super easy.
What I did not have, in this situation, was a jammie pattern for a custom made monkey.
But, who was I to deny the request of a girl and her monkey.
I took a tank top Grace had outgrown...
channeled my inner Sews N Bows and made Macy a custom nightgown.
As I was custom tailoring the nightgown, one of the discarded pieces of tank top, about to be thrown away, spoke to me and insisted it needed to be made into undies. So, again, I obliged.
Now Macy can sleep peacefully.
The things we do for our kids...and their stuffed monkeys!
