Monkey Managers - Next stop Planet of the Apes!

They are planning World domination you know??
These pictures made me laugh out loud! I made these three cheeky chaps for the great people at Super Fat Laces. I get some of my socks to make Monkeys from them and they asked me to make them a Mascot. Check out the fab selection of socks and laces at www.superfatlaces.com
Two of them will be taken to a festival they are attending and I think...They will be given away as prizes.... but don't blame me if they decide to keep them as office pets!
As you can see from the pictures they have arrived safely and settled in very well - although I think they may have caused some distraction from work! These photos are just a couple of the Monkeys in various settings and poses around the office.....
Which led me to think..... What do you think about sending me pictures of your Lilibet Made Monkeys in unusual places and positions.... (Nothing rude you Mucky minded people!) I'll post them on the facebook page for everyone to have a giggle at!

The Festival!

Hello All!
The Monkeys were very pleased to meet so many of you at the Stockton Heath Festival. Thanks to everyone who came and made the day loads of fun. The weather was great as well which brought out the crowds.
Just thought I'd post a couple of pictures for those who weren't able to make it so you can see how cool the Monkeys look on display - They were well behaved all day and loved all the attention!
You can see on the pictures some of the other items on sale along with the Monkeys including the gorgeous quilts, stunning silk scarves, Jenni's beautiful jewellery (Offbeat beads) and Ruth's lovely china tea cup candles. To see more of these items have a look at my facebook pages or get in touch and I'll give you contact details for them. Thanks again to Maeri at the Make and Do studio for organising the stall and getting me involved. Take a look at www.themakeanddostudio.com for the new list of classes.... I'm thinking of doing a bag making class.....
If you want to offer a Monkey a home take a look at the flickr pictures to see the designs, patterns and colours available. Don't forget if you want something specific that you don't see - just send me an email and I'll do my best to make a Monkey or other animal exactly as you want.
:(|) Its a Monkey face...??! x

And people say we Monkey around! But we're too busy...
Blimey - Stockton Heath Festival is THIS SATURDAY so it really is all systems go at the Hut! I've put loads of new pictures on the flickr of the Monkeys that will be available for adoption on Saturday so take a peek. Most of them are"One Offs" so if you see one you would like to offer a home to make sure you let me know or get down to the festival early. Most of the Monkeys are between £15 and £20.
The Craft stalls open at 10.00am till 6.00pm on the field near Alexandra Park and is only a short walk from the Village. There are loads of beautiful things for sale on the stall - all unique and handmade by local people. There will be Bags, Jewellery, Quilts, Scarfs, Brooches, Candles and Bird feeders to name just a few. So make sure you brings so pennies with you as something is bound to catch your eye.
Please tell your friends and come say Hello. (You may even get a Monkey Hut sticker!!!)
