Little Coco Felted Tote

At long last I’ve been able to make some serious crafting time. I’ve been wanting to make a felted bag for soooooo long, and finally found time to have a go. This is the first handbag I’ve ever made, as well as my first attempt at felting. Despite 5 hot washes, the cream wool didn’t felt too well. However, it’s still a sweet little bag (now it’s been embellished). I’ve just done another one in the reverse of these colours, and the pink has felted beautifully. As soon as it’s dried and finished, I’ll post a pic.

And then there were afghans

No, not the biscuit. Or the people. Or the dogs. Or the clothing (cringe). No. I’m talking about the afghan throw. Blanket. Snuggly. Y’know. It’s the first afghan I made. Took ages to find a pattern that I actually liked. The typical granny square ones make me want to choke. Disgusting things. This one’s made in a lavender soft cotton mix. It has a good weight to it and covers a single bed nicely.
