Handmade Fair Island Felted Purse!

4 years ago

I gotta say, my mom is <em>amazing</em> when it comes to knitting, crocheting, and all sorts of crafty things!
She just finished knitting this beautiful purse for my aunt`s birthday; I`m so jealous! The felting technique she used to make it was really neat: she uses 100% wool yarn and knits a large bag. Next, she washes it, puts it in the clothes dryer on high, and it shrinks down into a durable, tight knit little tote!
I love the colors and the pattern she used, so I`m begging her to make me one next! I totally think she should sell these at the craft fair in our area, but she thinks that with the amount of time they take for her to make she would have to charge $50 a piece for them. But, hey, time is money!
She got the pattern and the yarn at Micheal`s, a craft store. She said she definitely recommends Lion Brand Yarn! Maybe some of you Luuuxers would be interested in trying out this craft! :D

What do you all think of my mom`s creation?
