Creative time

Just so you see what some of my knitting time has been, here are two of my handbags I made recently. The green with black shoulder bag was a gift and the small hand bag is probably going to be for me. I am having fun making these felted bags and surprised on how it takes hardly any time to do so. Thought of selling them but not sure how much I would offer them. I also made a hat, gave it to my mother-in-law and she loved it. I need to grab a picture of it.

I am currently knitting a few more bags, got lots of ideas. I like adding an antique pin to them for my personal touch. Although, if you look closely at the shoulder bag, I embellished it with tiny pearl buttons, that took a lot of time!

I should be up and running by the end of the week, thanks for checking up on me!

Hey Robin, I like the pics of your handbags. I emailed you on your SCB email and now reading your blog think perhaps you no longer subscribe to SBC but Comcast? Could you give me a call on my cell? I have a few questions on handbag instructions and haven't had luck reaching Deb this week. 860-463-2761
