Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This was super easy to follow and there are lots of images showing each part of the bag, once you have cut out your pieces it is quite quick to sew together. I did not make an applique like the one shown in the pattern as my son had specifically asked for one to be made using this pug fabric that I had purchased. However, the images and tutorial to make the monkey applique are really detailed. I also changed the strap in order to make an adjustable one so that it will grow with my son. I did not have any velcro so used a large popper instead.
