DD's request for her birthday

My husband is in Iraq. She has requested a monkey (she loves monkeys) in a uniform like daddy wears! I have old uniforms he doesn't wear anymore since he just got new ones when he deployed. I just can't sew! I don't even know where to get a pattern to pay someone to do this. I have thought about taking it to a seamstress, but again, I don't have a pattern. Any ideas or anything will be appreciated. This is all she has asked for, and coming from an almost 7 year old, that's definitely something. I really want to be able to give this to her!!

  • A good seamstress could probably do it without a pattern. I did look around and the only thing premade I could find that was close was this: http://store.bigplush.com/storefrontprofiles/DeluxeSFItemDetail.aspx?sid=1&sfid=114670&c=171404&i=243653615

  • What about trying Build-a-Bear? I pretty sure they have monkeys and I know they have military uniforms. Other than that, check e-bay. E-bay has everything. :) Look up "military outfits for dolls, stuffed animals, etc" and I'll bet you can find what you're looking for. If you can't find exactly what you're looking for, I'll bet you can find the pattern on e-bay! Good luck.
