Monkey-Monkey!


A couple of months back I knitted a mad pair of socks in neon yarn and had loads of the stuff left over. I'm more of a pastel girl myself, so have been wondering what to use it on ever since. While wandering through our local shopping centre, I noticed in one of the clothes shops that a lot of the summer clothes were in these bright colours, so had the thought that maybe combining some little crochet bags with some felt kawaii might be the answer.

Here's the result - a monkey bag! It's just a simple crochet square bag with the monkey appliqued on using blanket stitch in brown embroidery silk. Just what any girl needs.......
It's to go on my stall locally next month, but I'll also put it on Etsy. I'm making some more of these, variations on the theme, the next one in pale blue with the applique yet to be decided.

Still beavering away at potato/portrait painting - never enough hours in the day!
