Monkey Face Appliqué

Sweet smiley and cheeky monkey face appliqué, monkeys are such lovable creatures
and I’m sure everyone will love a gift adorned with this one.

It can be crocheted up in just an hour depending on your hook speed lol, it’s simple
and super cute, the bows are optional, but I think it gives them a personality, add to
many projects such as cushions, clothing, blankets etc.

    I just took one class to learn how to crochet. I learned how to make a chain stitch how to make a A single stitch and a double stitch. I would like to learn how to read the patterns and also more instruction on other stitches. I learned with the largest needle and very large wall, which I found to be very cumbersome.
