A Newspaper Bag For Grandma Winnie

Newspaper Shopping bag
I made this bag for one of “Mums Monkeys” favourite followers, Grandma Winnie, who is officially Monkey, Darrell and Nigel’s adopted Grandma!!  She remarked that she liked the original newspaper style bag I did featuring the rascals and as I love her so much I made an extra special one for her, featuring her and her adopted monkey Hamish.
Final winnie bag
In cahoots with Winnie’s daughter Linda, who sent me some information and the pictures   I put this A4 sized newspaper design together, using Windows Publisher, which I then printed onto transfer paper and ironed onto a cotton bag from HobbyCraft.
Diamond Jubilee Bag
It was such a pleasure to do and am keeping my fingers tightly crossed that it got to Winnie in time for Mother’s Day.
