It all started last may, when I decided to try and sew myself a new handbag for spring. Using a pattern from this book, I made the bag above. It was so much fun, that I decided to make another on with a different pattern, which became a gift.Then I was inspired to try my hand at felting a bag for the fall, and created this.
My mother really liked the felted look and asked me to make one for her for Christmas. I was thrilled. Here's what I came up with for my mom.
I also made 8 of these tote bags for Christmas gifts.
I have no good reason to make another bag, but today I bought some more wool yarn (on sale-yay!) for yet another bag. I saw a design that I just HAVE to try out. I love the idea of creating something pretty, and so useful too! I anticipate that 2008 is going to be "the year of the bag" for me. ;)
