New Upcycled Item - Vintage Skirt Purses!

The other day an idea popped into my head. Why not try making purses out of vintage wool skirts? They're already lined, and since I'm rather lazy when it comes to sewing, that was a bonus for me.

So I felted some skirts, cut and sewed them - and here are the results! They have pockets on the sides, perfect for your keys, cell phone, or anything you need easy access to. The flower decorations are actually brooches you can take off and wear by themselves, if you so desire.

I really like how they turned out. I have the purses available for purchase at Gallery 141 in lovely downtown Lancaster, and will be carrying them in my online shops soon. 

I would love to know what y'all think of them!

Custom Stocking Stuffers

I have a new item this holiday season - custom stocking stuffers!

You pick two, three, or four items from the following list:
> bumpy washcloth (these are great as dishrags too!)
> flower face cloth
> face scrubbies
> re-usable cotton balls

All the items are my own designs, and are made with 100% cotton yarn in my pet-free, smoke-free home.

Here are the links to the listings in my Etsy shop.
