I cut mine three squares away from my zig zag stitched line. To create the frayed effect, pull out the lengthwise threads for two sets of squares leaving one full lengthwise set of threads next to the zig zag stitches.

Using tweezers to start pulling threads 2. Once started, grab threads and pull them loose 3. Completed frayed edges with one row remaining on the outside of the zig zag. This final touch is a great way to give your code monkey that little something extra. The banana shape is pretty easy!
Roll a bit of polymer clay between your fingers. Pinch it a bit on the top for the top of the banana then bend it in a crescent shape. Press your push pin int the back of the banana and massage it back into shape. Bake according to manufacture directions. Once it is out of the oven and cool, you can sand it a bit with and grit auto sandpaper to get any fingerprints or fibers out of it. Paint the tip and stem black and add some black spots and bruises. Will you give him or the DMC light effect threads a try? Considering it for my techie brother.
It really does go pretty quickly.
Most of my I bet you could have it done while watching a movie or two. Sorry about that, my inner nerd felt the need to scream at me. I have a feeling a few of these are going to make their way into our list of Christmas gifts to make this year. Thanks so much for the awesome tutorial!! I love this idea!
I think I smell a Christmas present Thank you, Susan! My husband is a code monkey and appreciated it when I showed it to him. I like the idea of imbedding a coded message. I figured he would have a limited audience, but those who love him would love him lots. I like the way you finished the back and I love the banana hanger too!
Another super fun bored zombie project. I love this neon monkey and especially the code — that is such clever touch. This is so cute. I saw this the other day and wondered where you got the banana pin. I had lots of fun with this one for sure. I thought about trying to find a banana button or something to turn it into a pin, but realized that my odds of finding a GREEN banana button were around zero.
