A while back I organized a giveaway because I was about to sew my 11th monkey as 'eleventh monkey', and the giveaway winner got to choose the colors. Sal won and chose orange and green with blue buttons. And I can’t believe I still haven’t blogged the resulting monkey until now:
Honestly, I wasn’t sure about the color combination, but it turned out beautifully. And that’s exactly why it’s fun to let someone else chose the colors for a change: you get surprising results. I made the monkey when I was still in Japan, and ‘Sal the Monkey’ has been living with the ‘Sal the Human’ for a couple of months now and she’s having a blast, they even went on a trip together.
