My assignment last week was to make a cowgirl monkey. I loosely fashioned her after the cowgirl in the Toy Story movie except a skirt instead of chaps and no pigtails. Hair on a monkey is no easy task as I found out when I made the last girl monkey. See in earlier post.
This is Lydia. She turned out pretty well. I would say better than I aimed for her to but that expression is a little overused. The hat was a little challenging.
There is no monkey hat store. All I could find to fit her was a straw hat–no good for a proper cowgirl. So I got the idea to cover the straw with cow hide. On her vest back I put a lucky My little Pony.
And of course, her name.
You can have one like her. Just check my etsy shop.
