Monkeys Jumping on the Bed

May 1st

lounge pants, round II

Another pair of lounge pants from Amy Butler’s In Stitches and another embroidered tank. This monkey, like the first, comes from Sublime Stitching. Although I’m a bit scared by this one. Hopefully the recipient — a birthday girl — isn’t.

  1. Kelli, these look fabulous. Your recipient will love it! I don’t think the monkey is scary at all… I like how the face is a heart!

  2. Cute stuff – you’re on a roll! Yeah, I know April is over, but I must make some of these! My current pair of sleep pants have seen better days.

  3. Too cute!

  4. Nah, the face is a little hypnotic but still very cute. I really want to snaz up my sleep shirts now; my household would probably thank me. πŸ˜‰

    OK, what’s the May project huh huh huh?! I need to add *one more thing* to my to-do list!!

  5. I have just done 8 of that same monkey pattern for Aidin’s zoo birthday party + a few extras. I’m a little over it by now! But that’s a great gift. Who wouldn’t love that?

  6. Those pants with the tank are adorable!

    I haven’t gotten past choosing the fabric for my pants, and now I’m leaving for the first half of May so I guess I’ll have to get to them later! Can’t wait to hear what May’s project is.
