Meet Shinji the Snow Monkey

I love the 15th! It’s pattern release day in the Funny Faces Quilt Block of the Month Club!

The new pattern this month is Shinji the Snow Monkey.

Snow monkeys (Japanese macaques) are one of my favorite winter animals. They do winter like I’d do winter if I had to live outdoors – they soak in natural hot springs!

In real life these monkeys look pretty grumpy – even when they’re soaking. I had to change things in my design a little bit – giving them a blissful hot water smile. 🙂

If you’re in the club already, head over to the clubhouse to download the pattern. This link will take you right to the snow monkey’s page.

If you’re not in the club yet – here’s the link to join.

Here’s a quick peek at my snow monkey coming together.

I ended up making monkeys in three different colors. There’s the grey one (the most realistic) you see at the top of the post. Then there’s the silly green one you see in the video and here. . .

And I also made a purple monkey – just for a little extra fun.

Happy stitching!
