If your a crafter you have probably seen these little gems . They are flexible metal (kinda like what you find in slap bracelets) but have a pin or cotter joint pin as a post on the ends. You slide them into a sleeve and VIOLA! you have yourself a closeable pocket. They come in a wide selection of sizes or should I say lengths. I have been working with the smaller end, 3-4.5 inches in size.

I was wondering why they call monkey frames,, monkey frames. (assorted frame picture pic (B) in background) They don't look like a monkey. Something to ponder I guess. I purchased these from an Etsy shop that was going out of business.I have seen some really cute handbags made using them. Simple to do just create the bottom of your bag, make a long small sleeve at the top, slip the unscrewed bar in and screw back together, 'interchangeable' perfect for the girl who can never have too many purse options.
Just one crafters view on trying to change things up and make some new and fun items for my Etsy shop and craft shows. Enjoy! - TNfrmgrl
