I made this last week for someone who loves monkeys! There isn't much of a monkey selection so she settled for sock monkeys! I really hope she likes it since she hasn't seen it yet but she has seen my other purses.
The handles gave me the most grief so I had to redo them but all in all I think it turned out OK!

Thanks for looking!

BTW, does the red fabric look too red to anyone else. I'm not sure if it's my monitor or my camera that makes it look like that.  Undecided

DH, who pretends not to be interested, was looking over my shoulder just now. Once he saw your title, he insisted that I click and let him see "what the hell that is." He laughed and thought it was great. And he knows nothing about sewing or purses or anything. Then he said that he would never carry a purse, it's just not for him.  Wink

That is so cute.  How could you be sad carrying a purse with that fabric?

That looks great. The fabric is to die for!

Thanks all!

I can't take credit for the fabric though, my friend picked it out. I made the purse for her so I'm stressing a little hoping she likes it when it gets to her in Cali.

I really wasn't into sock monkeys before but they totally grew on me!!!  Wink
