*yes, my post says Sublime StitchERY. It should say Sublime StitchING. The link is posted too many places to fix it and republish, so I am adding this note here ;)*
I am a Monkey. Born in the year of the Monkey. Need I say more…lol.
I discovered these little transfers in my local Ben Franklin Crafts store.
I was good.
I passed them up.
No, nope, no. Not going to do a monkey.
Then, I found Craftster.
Bad, bad, Craftster.
While searching around in the stitchery haven there, I found many interpretations of the “Monkey Love” set of transfer patterns. And…the monkeys were calling me.
So, I broke down. I bought it.
Then, I just had to have something to put the little monkeys on, right? I want it on something that everyone will see. Not something hidden away…unused. That is not monkey fun.
A purse. Yup. That is what the monkeys need.
Well, I had some canvas. I had a pencil.
I drew a pursey shape. Traced it out on paper. Traced that out on the canvas. Cut some pellon. Fused on the pellon.
Got the “Monkey Love” transfers out. Fondled them a bit. Cut out a few little designs.
The plan is to tint the fabric with crayons, then embroider. I got this idea from Craftster as well. [Warning: if you want to find hundreds of fun and exciting projects, do NOT go to craftster… no, nope, no…you’ll be sorry…]
*sneaking away quietly to color the monkeys with crayons…*
