I made this bag for my partner in the Jim Henson Swap.


Lots of techniques I have discovered on Craftster went into the details Smiley
The eyes are Teesha Moore style patches,
the strap is a result of weaving some fuzzy yarn.

(I was really pleased at how monstery it looks!)
The eyebrow was crocheted and then sewn on, the teeth are felt cones and the nose and lip are stuffed fleece.

And to top it all off, with the exception of the fuzzy yarn and the faux fur, the whole project was a stash buster! Grin
