It’s way past the middle of the month, but we haven’t forgotten about our farmer monkey amigurumi for September! Here it is! Finally!
What will he be harvesting today?
In making this monkey, I wanted the body to have a hay-like color to it. Actually, the name of the color for the yarn was “hay”! At first, I didn’t know what kind of monkey to make for the month of September. But then I saw this yarn and thought why not make a farmer monkey amigurumi? When I think of September, I think of things like fall, farmlands, and harvesting crops–especially pumpkins for some reason.

Hey everyone it’s Mother’s Day! Do anything special for mom today?
Going along with our little monkey of the month theme, we decided to make a Mother’s Day monkey amigurumi! Surprise!! Yeah, not much of a surprise but hey it’s a good idea especially if you’ve completely run out of gift ideas for mom this year. Why not just make a hand-crafted and personalized monkey amigurumi for mom? Moms always like what their children make them. It’s like being back in elementary school and bringing home a teacher-forced-me-to in-class art project for Mother’s Day. And with nothing else to do with it, mom will slap a magnet on it and show it off on the sustenance box: the refrigerator!!!
Well, hopefully you don’t think of it that way! We love our mommies and I’m sure they’ll love anything you try to do to thank them.
But if you really want to do something personal and special for mom, then take the crochet mom a Mother’s Day amigurumi approach.
Of course, this monkey would not be considered a mom if it didn’t even have a kid monkey to go with it!
What do you think? Does the apron on our Mother’s Day monkey amigurumi make it look motherly?
What’s mom going to bake today? Cakes, cupcakes, pancakes?
How about all of the above. If any of you remember from my first few posts, those are NOT hats!!! They are cakes!
They can hold hands too! Well somewhat…
This is mom’s favorite lipstick. And here is our little kiddie stealing mom’s lipstick and going for a joy ride~
Oh, and don’t worry this family is still not complete yet! Are we forgetting someone? More monkey amigurumis to come!
Thanks to all of you for looking~ Happy Mother’s Day! Maybe I should go and get a I<3MoM tattoo! hahaa…ouch.

This series of amigurumis began with the birth of Bolt the friendly raindrop. It was mighty hot this April and there were barely any showers in SoCal. Where did all the showers go?! How will the May flowers grow? Thus, Bolt came to the rescue!
And since it is now May, I thought it would only be appropriate if Bolt had some friends. Let me introduce Sunny the Sunflower and her counterpart water bucket, Polly. Together, these three make any garden warm and friendly!
The PDF pattern for Bolt can be found at my etsy: janama.etsy.com. Patterns for Sunny and Polly are pending!
Here are some more pics if you’re interested.
