I crocheted myself a monster purse a while ago and my 5-year-old adored it. When she started PreK (yes, it's taken me this long to post pics!) she wanted a monster backpack. How could I say no? This is the third one of these sort of guys that I've made. I used a strand of yellow worsted, a strand of pink fun fur and a strand of Tweety Bird boa to make it. The lining is an adorable rainbow fabric I found at Joann's.









C&C welcome!

I'm interested in personal swaps.
For a project I'm in need of Christmas countdown inchies! If you're interested and/or want more information feel free to pm me.

Thanks guys! And Sphynxz, no pattern. It's single crocheted all the way around. When it got long enough I simply slip stitched the chain together and then crocheted in a round until it was as tall as I wanted. Then I just went back and forth for the flap. The only things that are separate are the straps.
