  • Heartfelt Felted Purses Pattern

    Heartfelt Felted Purses Pattern


    Delivery Method:

    These little purses enchant me. I love making them and I love finishing them, decorating them with beads, with beaded hearts, with little knitted flowers (beaded Cherry Blossoms, for example). They are perfect little gift boxes for the necklace you want to give to a family member, or the ring you saw in the Antique Store window that made your think of your best friend and you had to get it for her, or the "something blue" earrings you lent to a God Daughter so she could have something borrowed and something blue, and a beautiful little keepsake purse to remember everything by.

    Tablet Bag Felted Purses


    Delivery Method:

    These tablet bags reflect the marriage of practicality and beauty: the hex frame at the top of the bag adds structure while keeping your tablet where you put it without fussy zippers, snaps, or other closures.

    Unembellished, it is the perfect bag to keep your tablet safe inside another bag. Dress it up with stripes or fun hand-dyed yarns. Or carry it all on its own and girly it up with chain handles, sparkle rivets, and a little external snap purse for essentials like small wallet, phone, power cord, lipstick.
