Teeny Tiny Handbags

Posted by Elaine B on Wednesday Nov 16, 2011 Under Bag, Felt, Flower, Gift, Pampootie

Little felted handbag keyrings – the first designs and creations I ever sold!
Feels fantastic when people like what you have made so much that they are willing to pay actual, real live money ! Admittedly these were sold to friends, so perhaps they were being kind but, either way, I was really thrilled and carried on making….

Lisa Vintage Purse

Posted by Elaine B on Thursday Nov 10, 2011 Under Bag, Gift, Knitting, Pampootie


A little zippy knitted purse insipred by the green and pink flowers on the piece of vintage fabric used to line it. This gorgeous fabric came from my Grandma some years ago and I’ve always loved it and wanted to make something pretty with it.
