Done!

It's done! I am so absolutely thrilled with how this purse came out! I had so much fun making it. I am usually not a fan of seed stitch, but once this was felted, it came together really great. I did almost get myself into a bit of trouble. Being as I hand-dyed the yarn. I ran a bit short. By the time I had sewn together the bag, I had only a few inches of yarn left. I was so happy that I had enough to finish the bag that I didn't think of what I was going to use to sew on the handles! Of course, I got to scramble on that a little, but I found satin ribbon that matched the purple polka-dotted lining!
Here is a shot of the dotty lining! Oops....is that chocolatey goodness peeking out?














A better picture of the (dark) chocolate and the last fun thing I found for my partner! I hope she likes it all!















Here is half of hubby's birthday socks. I still have to knit the second one.















And a belated thank you to Cathy! I really like the stitch markers and the knitterly note cards! The pictures don't show them well, but the markers are a pretty pink and clear.














Soon (I hope!), there will be picks of the yarn and such for my Sockapalooza socks! I NEED to start those!

that bag is beautiful! I love the colors, and how did you get seed stitch to show up after felting?? My seed stitch always disappears ...

I wanted to let you know that I've been using the bag ever since I received it. Its holding up really well and I've gotten tons of compliments on it. I think it's even better with the ribbon handle attachment since the handles never snag or anything.
