The Garden Party Felted Bag

I was inspired by the "Julia Roberts" bag that someone snipped out of a magazine. I saw the copy of her bag one day at a little yarn boutique and wanted to make my own version of it. Instead of silk flowers, I felted my flowers and added a few extras to it. At the time, I was experimenting with dying my own wool yarn with Kool-Aid and started working on this purse. It was so much fun and the creative juices just flowed out. And of course I had to use some "fun fur". I wore my bag to a baby shower and a cousin loved it so much that she wanted me to make one for her just like it. I explained that I couldn't duplicate the bag but if she wanted, I'd gladly sell it to her. She agreed and I sold my first purse. I later took it home and lined it for her. The "Garden Party Bag"is my pride and joy.
Enjoy it Cec and wear it in good health.
