Yes, although we’ve already made a post about a Thanksgiving monkey last year, it’s just not complete without a pilgrim monkey amigurumi to go along with it. So here we have it–a pilgrim and an Indian amigurumi. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! That’s it!! Haha kidding, I’m not done rambling yet.
Anyway, let’s get back to the main point of this post. It’s almost Thanksgiving! Which means stuffing ourselves silly full of yummy food right~~? Ah~ already getting off topic…sorry about that, I’ll put the pre-Thanksgiving drooling on pause.
Why didn’t we make this pilgrim monkey amigurumi last year? I don’t even know the answer to that question! I’m guessing we were probably procrastinating again on making the monthly amigurumi and ended up with only one. So after a year of seeing our original Thanksgiving monkey sitting around by lonesome self, we finally decided to make this pilgrim monkey amigurumi to accompany it…that is, in feasting on a turkey!!!
Cutting out the felt collar piece was unexpectedly challenging. Maybe it’s because I haven’t been cutting much felt lately, but that collar sure was trying my patience! The shape of it is so simple, yet I sat there for quite a while trimming away at it to get the signature pilgrim look. I remember thinking, “why can’t I cut such a simple shape?! Am I stupid?!”. But anyway, everything turned out fine.
Maybe our pilgrim monkey amigurumi would rather feast on a sheep instead..? That’s a glow-in-the-dark sheep, by the way.
Nah, in the end, it’s got to be turykey! And yes, they are doing exactly what you are thinking…..petting the turkey!! No? That’s not what you were thinking? Aha! You must have been thinking…EAT the turkey, huh?
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Looks like our Indian and pilgrim monkey amigurumi will be busy doing something~!Post Tags
