This bag is one of the reasons I wanted to learn how to knit 4 years ago and I finally got around to making it! She was inspired by other monster bags here on craftster and on ravelry and she was super easy to make! I used 2 strands of fun fur and 1 strand of red heart super saver and cast on 84 stitches on size 8 circular needles and knit until it looked big enough. I binded off until I was left with 42 stitches and switched to straight needles and worked the flap alternating rows between knit and purl so it would match the body of the bag and again worked until it looked long enough and binded off. Then I sewed the bottom together, added a liner snaps, a strap and decorations!

I love her very much, all that is left to do is to name her! I am taking suggestions lol.

Oh, wow this is absolutely adorable! I would def add some crazy felt teeth to the flap though. ^_^ but this looks great!

So cute, love her eyes and that bow. (I vote for either Mathilda or Barbara.)

thanks <3

I wanted to add teeth but when I cut them out they just didn't look right, took away from her cute girlyness.

Very cute.  I like how you did the eyes too.  Teeth is diffiuclt.  I can see how they would change her looks - maybe she would look less fierce if she was wearing braces? Just kidding.  Wink She looks lovely as she is.
