I mean, it's only a 5 hour flight, or 32 hour drive-- It's not that far right?

This was my inspiration. I think that it's still cuter than my finished product.
I headed over to Hobby Lobby to pick up a few ingredients. They didn't have the traditional sock monkey material so I went with solid felt colors. I decided to get the big box of fill.. just in case. :-)
This was the in progress piecing. Does it look similar?
Here is the finished product. What do you think?
The pillows are about 15x15 and are made of mostly felt and blanket material. I used yarn for the tassels on the hat and buttons for the eyes instead of just a flat material. In all, these probably took about 4 hours from start to finish. This would include time for me to draw my pattern.
I'll let you know if he likes them. Remember a few months back, I made him the silly sock monkey quilt. I think the pillows will pair well with the blanket. I have some leftover material from the quilt project so I was thinking of making some sock monkey bunting. I've never made bunting before but I can't image that it's that hard.
