Monkeying around......


Here is an apron I made for my niece's birthday. She is a zoologist and works for the 'big' zoo in Omaha Nebraska. Although she isn't working with primates right now, they are her favorite animals to work with. When I saw this 'Curious George Goes To The Zoo' fabric, I knew I had to make her something with it!
I included a potholder from the same material, some notepads and a clever monkey vegetable peeler from "the store I hate but have to shop there because this city has no decent stores."

Here is the reverse side. After making it, I decided I SHOULD have made her a craft apron so she could have worn it to work.....oh well, maybe next time!

You must tell me where you found that material. My mom volunteers at the zoo in Tulsa and I would love to make her something she could wear to the zoo! Thanks! That is one of the cutest aprons you have made yet!

The fabric is great and the apron is cute. I'm sure she'll love it! We love Curious George here! He's classic and with the movie & the PBS show he's popular again.

What a great present. I'm sure she will be so happy with it. Love all the matching things.
We have a fantastic "Open Plains" Zoo here where I live. We just don't get to visit it enough. Very expensive. Something to do when visitors come to town.

SO cute! I love that fabric. And that store you hate...I'd kill to get one here...we have WalMart and KMart and a very crappy mall. Very. Crappy.
