Siew

He has just the sweetest little face! I always make birthday presents for my daughters friends. While at our last party my daughter asked "What did your Mommy make?".

And your weekend? That sounds like my kind of weekend. Have fun!

Eleanor

Love a bag with a story, who wouldn't be delighted with such a cheeky chap, and is that a Bunnikins mug I spy?

I have never written in to your blog but feel I must give you a rave - I have probably read most of your blog posts and think you are the funniest and warm hearted person, AND make the cutest things (LOVE Ruby). Thank you for sharing all you do, including all the little funny things.

Liz

Long time lurker here... that is really adorable! I just had to tell you. You are very talented and I love seeing your creations. Have a great weekend!

Jenny S

Awww such a sweet monkey!
Have a lovely weekend! xo

Donna

Haha, I save my money for wine as well 8-)

I like how you stitched the monkey's face so it frays just a bit around the edges, it looks more--playful? than just using an applique stitch.

Christine

This is such a great gift! What a sweet little monkey! Have a great weekend!

Vonnie

That is unbelievably cute. Nice work!

Daisie

Hello, I have just discovered you via 'feeling stictchy'

Had a good read, it sounds very like my house! We too broke a dyson after we'd done some DIY. We cleaned it for many hours in the bath but the fine plaster dust didn't shift so I just had to have a new one!

It's a shame I missed your giveaway :-( but I'll be back (oooh, came over all Arnie then)!

How can I get put on your birthday gift list??? That is precious! A very brilliant and resourceful gift and I am sure the recipient loved it.

And, for the sake of solidarity, may I just say how familiar I am with the birthday party but no money for a birthday gift dilemma? Because I have several kids, there are lots of birthday invitations that cross our paths. In addition to sometimes not having the cash, I hate to just go out and buy another mass-marketed plastic thingy for someone to add to their already too-big pile of STUFF.

Enjoy your visit with your sister. I hope you will share with her that bottle of wine you bought with the money you saved on the birthday gift!

Crazy cute!

Savannah

O.O
THAT IS ONE OF THE MOST CUTEST THINGS I HAVE EVER SEEN.

Wow. I am totally in awe of your last-minute, on-the-cheap gift--you'd never know either to look at it!

ElenaMelena

Such a nice monkey bag!
I also love to make the presents, not only for the money I save but also because the present it's just for that person.
But I'm gelous, I wish I could be able to make such nice thigs in just 2 hours, I am much slower.
Greetings!
