Holy Cow a Felted Purse!


I am so excited, I actually felted something....I bought a purse kit from a lady here on whidbey island and she has an alpaca farm...She also makes her own colored roving's and teaches needle felting...I had fun doing this and it is really easy...I didn't even poke my fingers which is great for me. I am taking a class from her on Saturday, which I am very excited about. I am going to make a purse from the very beginning and really learn this felting stuff... I just love this purse...Especially the little ball on the zipper part. I picked my own colors for the roving. the purse is brown and the kit came with blue, green, and black. I added the pink and bright red which are more "Me". One more habit.....I mean hobby...just what I needed! Melinda
Oh yeah, that is a quarter on it for scale.......
