Tinker Verve

creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

felted tote

purse from felted wool sweaterI made a fun little bag from an old wool sweater that I felted.

purseThe handle is made from a vintage barkcloth drape – the trim around the top came from a linen dress with little blue embroidered flowers.

flowerThis is my first attempt at a ‘linen flower’ but in this case I should call it a barkcloth flower…just doesn’t have the same ring though.

purse from felted wool sweaterI’m going to be doing a ‘show’ on Saturday that is north of Spokane.  Here’s a link to an article that was written about it.   If you live in the area come see me.  This link will give you the information that you need.
