This crazy bright monkey is totally relaxed

So that you don't have to choose between doing good in the world and buying a handmade gift to show a loved one that you care, through October of 2017, 75% of your purchase at Miniature Monkey Creations will be donated to The Southern Poverty Law Center.

The Southern Poverty Law Center is dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry and to seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of our society. Using litigation, education, and other forms of advocacy, the SPLC works toward the day when the ideals of equal justice and equal opportunity will be a reality.

SPLC's work has become increasingly important as white nationalist hate groups are emboldened by a president who accepts their endorsements and at times refuses to condemn their actions. Read more about SPLC and their work at https://www.splcenter.org/what-we-do

Welcome to Miniature Monkey Creations, where I have harnessed the power of my disabling chronic headaches to crochet hats, scarves, and other warm fuzzies for you.

You might notice that my crocheted toys have less detailed faces than some others you've seen. That's because I make toys that are truly meant to be played with, and are not just a decoration to sit on a shelf. Highly detailed handcrafted doll faces are often painted or glued on, making the toy more delicate and not washable. After hand crocheting each piece of your warm fuzzy friend, I sew them together firmly with yarn, not thread, and give everything a tug to make sure it won't come apart in your child's hands. I offer you options for eyes, with embroidered yarn eyes being safest for babies and kids under three, and safety or shank eyes and button eyes available for older kids (or adults!). My toys are made with machine washable acrylic yarn and polyester stuffing so they're easy to clean up if they get drooled on or otherwise dirtied, as kids' toys do. Please feel free to really love your Miniature Monkey Creations!

I aim to make regular donations of my crocheted items to local charities. Many of the samples you see in my shop have been donated to people in need. Your purchase helps to support my ongoing charity work and keeps me productive despite living with disability.

Your item is crocheted by me in my fur- and tobacco-free home. I do occasionally burn incense in my yarn room. Please let me know if you're sensitive and would like your item washed with scent- and dye-free detergent immediately before shipping.

I work with synthetics and plant fibers, no animal fibers (except in the rare instance where I personally know the spoiled rotten critters they came from, or if they're thrifted or otherwise reclaimed, which will be clear in the listing).

See something in the sold section that you'd like? Want something a little different than what you see here? Let's talk! I love taking on custom orders.

You can see more of my crocheted stuffed animals here http://goo.gl/ZWksox and other work here http://goo.gl/ku8cJl.

I aim to have custom items ready to ship within a week if I have all the yarn available. I will let you know if a yarn order (usually takes 2 weeks) or my health leads to a longer wait time and give you the option to wait or cancel your purchase.
