Now, going back to the title of this post, I have a friend who loves monkeys. In fact, long time readers may remember Missmass Munkey who was gifted to this very friend. When thinking up a Christmas present for her I know she was getting a toy monkey from someone else (the joys of crafty friends!) so whilst I wanted to work on a monkey theme I knew it couldn't be a toy.
When I was at the Knitting and Stitching Show we found the most fabric, covered in monkeys! So I made a bag.
All the monkeys! It's a flat bag, lined in the same fabric and all seams are bound in bias binding. I gave it an adjustable strap, mostly so she could see how I make them and it has an inner zipped pocket.
Next week I have some oven gloves to show off and the rest of the bags I made for Christmas gifts!
