Little Monkey-To-Be

I wasn't really jazzed up by the costume pattern I had picked up for W last year (on sale after Halloween), but I found another today that I couldn't resist. It's an organ-grinder monkey costume, complete with little red cap and vest. I picked up all the materials today (good grief-- fur, fleece, felt, interfacing, grippy foot stuff, elastic, knit ribbing, fiberfill, buttons, velcro, and a tassel!). With all those different materials, I am beginning to wonder a bit if this is going to be a bigger project than I first anticipated. I'll need to put the photo of the finished costume on the wall of my sewing room to keep me motivated to finish it. It's so darn cute, I can't wait to see W dressed up like a little monkey!
