i cleaned out my closet a few weeks ago to purge items for my church's rummage sale. i found these knitted goodies stuffed in a purse:
basic everyday purse (rav linky) by bev galeskas (bob rest her soul). this is the first felted purse i ever made. i don't recall the yarn, but it's probably patons. i have no idea where i got that shell on the flap. i guess i was trying to be exotic.
pocket purse by bev. the yarn was plymouth galway (i think) in eggplant and celedon (i do remember that much). i called it my eggplant purse.
look at how i sewed those buttons are. pretty crappy.
i thought i was so hot knitting a lucy bag. i thought i was knitting a rare bag...until i saw the same one at a LYS in vermont. i ordered the pattern and yarn (cascade 220 in pansy) from yarn barn, making this my very first internet knitting project. this was my birthday gift to me. now i buy yarn to make me feel better.
i also called this purse my muppet bag, for obvious reasons:
it's been ages since i made a felted bag (felted anything really, since the FP slippers killed my washing machine last year and i'm scared to death to do anything in the new one). guess i should knit something up and felt it!
