09 Christmas Drop #95

09 Christmas drop #95

Dropped: Park Bench, Paseo de Born, Palma de Mallorca, Spain

How many toys: 1 'Mervin Monkey'

Made by: Mari

Dropped by: Mari (and Fiona)

When: Sun. Dec 20th, 1:15pm

And Mari says: Dropped just beside a music event for families, We pretended to take picks of me on the bench and then I was able to get up and pretend I was focusing the camera whilst taking a photo of the drop, then sat back down, smiled, and we made a run for it whilst everyone was focused on the stage. Hope he finds a good home. Felice Navidad!

Hello Mari and Fiona.
We went into Mc Donalds in Borne this evening when we saw a homeless sitting outside. We told our kids to give him some money. They did before we entered Mc Donalds. Inside Mc Donalds without us adults noticing the homeless came in and gave our kids something. It was the beautifull little doll you made. It gave us a chance to teach our kids a little bit about the importance of giving.
Unfortunatly the kids lost the dog in the christmast shopping after dinner. They were dissapointed. But I believe the little doll will teach someone else something too.. Thank you:)

Dear Tonje,
Thank you so much for letting me know he was found! The most I could have hoped was that he found a good home...To know that he is on a journey to spread love and the importance of giving to more than just one home is heartwarming. May you and yours enjoy a Happy Holiday season.

Would you be willing to share where you founf that pattern for your monkey? I would love to make some to spread some cheer!

Mari said...

The pattern is from a book my SIL sent from Australia. It's called 'Softies' and produced by Penguin and Viking (didn't show any writers so reckon it was just put out by Viking)

Oh looking it up I just noticed I was supposed to enlarge the template to 125% which would probably have made him MUCH easier to make! He was a bit fiddly, but workable.

There's many cute projects in the book. Enjoy.

Stacy said...

Thanks for replying, Mari. I will see if I can find that book. He is so cute!

Found it! Just in case others want it too, the american released edition of the book is called, "Softies Only a Mother Could Love."
