Alpaca & Indigo Merino Purse

Here is the next Purse. It is from Alpaca Wool & Indigo Merino Wool. One strand of each, spun & plied together to make a tweed yarn. I decided on a lighter blue 5 petal flower for this one, and the beaded button I made for this one is made from cut beads that really sparkle & catch the light.

Another completed Purse

I finished this one today.
Needle Felted Calla Lilies on a Raspberry Wet Felted Purse. I made a beaded button for the closure. This one is 11" wide & 9 1/2 " high.

I have another purse wet felted, but haven't needle felted a design on it yet. Will post a picture when it's done.

I should have a wide range of items for the show that is coming up in 1 week!!!

Newest Project

Here is what I have been working on for the past couple of days.
Wet Felted Goat Milk, Oatmeal & Honey Soap Balls.
The Goat Milk Soap is some I made a while back, that was a batch that
didn't come out quite right...set up too fast to get into the molds, so instead
of loosing the whole batch, I grabbed rubber gloves & rolled the stuff
into balls. The soap was setting up so fast that it needed smoothing out
on the outside, and yet it never looked pretty enough to sell, so it sat here &
then I remembered that I had seen info on wet felting a cover for soaps..

As you use these soaps, the felting process continues & once the soap is gone,
you have a nice little scrub pad, or cut it open & make a tiny bag or doll or
teddy bear hat.
