I have the greatest friends! My friend Sarah sent me a box of goodies on Friday.

I had gifted her this Loop "money" batt a few months ago:
Loop Roving - with shredded money!!

purchased at the Homespun Yarn Party. She spun it up and crocheted this amazing bag for me!

Check out the shredded money!

Money bag!

Not only is the bag fabulous - but Sarah is a genius and even added a little zipper pull made from pennies to complete the "money" theme.
How cool is that!

Sarah and I also share a love of Sock Monkeys and have gifted each other various sock monkey fabrics from time to time. This time she sent me a sock monkey sock bag!

The inside fabric is bananas. Too cute! This was made by Bea Binney. You can get one here.

And lastly - she picked up this awesome Joelle Hoverson fabric from Purl Soho during her trip to NY.

I love the zipper pull! That fabric is gorgeous, too. Lucky you. I think I'd make a two-tone shirt-dress. (Assuming in this fantasty that I have learned to make buttonholes.)
