A felted purse


I love felting purses. I think technically what I do to them is called fulling, but since it ends up looking like felt, I will call it felting and make it easier on myself. I crochet the bags with wool yarn (this is Lion Brand Wool), I add the funky yarn on the edges to sew the bag, then I throw it into the washer using hot water. When it comes out, it's felted. I added the beads to weigh down the flap since there isn't a closure for it. The strap is a chain. I really like how pretty it is.

Other stuff, I got some really great indian stamps (indian of the American sort). I got them cut and have used a few, but I'm trying to figure out if I'm going to use the project for an ezine article for May or if I just want to put it on my blog. I think it's pretty dang cool. Oh, and I just have to direct you to this blog I found. It's called A Bitchin' Escape. It can definitely be offensive, so if you're a sensitive sort, this wouldn't be the place for you. I also think it's hilarious, so if your sense of humor runs to the dark, you might like it. When they say "Bitchin", they aren't talking valley girl talk. But I found it last week and it's interesting to read.
