Grape Ape

Trina from Woven Chains was absolutely so supportive and sweet when I posted about my Monkey Love shirts and ended by saying her daughter would love one. So I offered to make one for her. They supplied the shirt and I supplied my monkey magic. I was contemplating the design when I remembered Trina's affection toward purple AND that our monthly Etsyrain creative challenge (thanks KC) was Purple Rain. So behold GRAPE APE:
Finding purple fabric proved to be a bit of a challenge as it is not a color I naturally gravitate toward. However, I ended up having a lot of fun going through all my scrap bags to find the perfect purples for this primate. Humor me a minute while I walk down memory lane and tell you where all these pieces came from. The solid lavender is from the VERY FIRST QUILT I made (see pic). The stripes are from a baby quilt I finished a year ago. The stars and dots are from a yearly strip exchange that we do in my Quilt Club.
Hope it's a hit with Trina's daughter!

Katy, she loves it. In fact her actual word was "awesome." We'll have to find a time to stop by and pick it up very soon. Thanks again. You rock, girlfriend.

Kind of has a Mojojojo feel to it (very cool villian from the Power Puff Girls)

Purple + monkey = total love. :)

If you are ever in need of purple things, that IS the color that I gravitate towards, so I probably have some. You should see my purple yarn stash. :)
