Today has been a very wonderful day. I feel like I got a lot done. I've finally made a book I want to sell on etsy, I'm going to list it tomorrow. I stopped off at the craft store for some more cover paper and was struck by these felts they have. I especially like the one that looks like alligator skin. I bought a couple sheets of each, and I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them. Maybe purses? It would be a simple construction, just fold them in half and stitch, maybe line it with a piece of red felt, add a snap closure and voila, a clutch. I'll have to give that a try, maybe give some instructions in a later post?
There's just something about felt that makes me happy. I guess because it's so inexpensive (the craft felt that is), and it's perfect for hand sewing because it doesn't fray. I guess thats why there are so many adorable little plushies, patches, pins, etc. made by people on etsy. I'd love to give it a try, I just want to add some of my own style to it.
