The recipient received her package and loves the bag! It is a dark fuchsia/pink and felted so it is nice and thick and feels substantial. Big enough for a lunchbag, purse, or project tote!
This item was felted by hand. I wanted full control of the process and worked in the sink with hot tap water, a bit of dish soap and a lot of squishing, squishing, and MORE squishing! Everything shrank except for the handle and I swear it grew. The bag shrank more vertically than horizontally, but I like the shape. A bit of visual interest was added with some buttons out of my collection.
I also included several smaller items:
a pink sheep out of the same yarn (Lion Brand Feltable Wool). The pattern was easy to follow and was found on the Flutterby Patch blog. Hers have faces…not sure why I decided not to make a face…
It’s only about 2 1/2 inches tall, shown against a backdrop of one of my vintage Florida Postcards.
in a little bag out of Peaches & Creme in Pink Lemonade. How about this for bright colors?
