Batik Purse

This is my latest creation, a batik purse. I used several batiks that I sewed together to create this purse. I added 2 buttons stacked on top of each other, but the top button was a button with a shank, which ended up falling off as it didn't really sit right. So I sewed a small round yellow button on top of the purple flower button instead and that worked much better as it wasn't a shank. I added 2 double pockets to the lining. It's a great size purse. My favorite so far! Pin It Now!

Wool Felted Balls

I felted a half a pound of wool for an upcoming project that I will be doing in the fall. My arms were sore after felting nearly 100 balls by hand. Then I dyed half the balls yellow and half orange. My husband said they looked like melon balls and looked good enough to eat.
