I'm slightly nervous but excited to try my hand at this Molly Monkey pattern for February's craft of the month. As is my custom, I made my decision without actually thinking it through completely or reading the pattern instructions. Once I printed out the pattern and took a glance at the instructions, I started getting cold feet. There are lots of abbreviations and a few words I will be looking up. I know they publish English to Spanish translation books. Someone should make an English to sewing translation book because sometimes I sense that people who sew aren't talking my language. I had the opportunity to spend about three months in China some time ago, and I honestly felt like I understood Cantonese better than I understand sewing-speak.
I would love to have one of you join me in this project. Please! I will definitely need a fellow traveler on this bumpy journey into the world of Molly Monkey making. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
Here are the links to Molly Monkey at mmmcrafts and Mikey Monkey. Another free pattern . . . woo hoo! Molly is a full pattern, but Mikey is simply Larissa's variation on the Molly pattern to make it more boy-friendly. Take a look and let me know if you will be sewing up a Molly or Mikey this month.
