Mr Monkey's washbag

Mr Monkey had asked me to make him a washbag that would be "exactly the same" as his previous one (which is black faux leather, yuk !!) but this time using the monkey waxed fabric that I got from Ma Petite Mercerie, already used here. So I applied myself to reproducing the bag including every detail, the pockets, the handle, etc... The result is far from perfect but Mr Monkey has deemed it satisfactory and has officially adopted it, so all is well !
Robert Kaufman waxed monkey fabric, grey waxed fabric from Les Carollaises, trims from the Arras market, and the whole thing has been made more rigid with some thick backing fabric from Franklins Ipswich.

The pictures were taken on a sunny day in Ipswich... let's say that was a long time ago !!
