Doh! I did it! This is my 1st felted project. It's called the "The Lady Bug" purse. I found it in a book called "Pursenalities".
The example is red w/black accents. You can see it on the cover of the book. Well, forget that! I went w/the yarn I had available. WE call it the "pumpkin purse". :-)
Heather, our 9 year old, loves this colorful little fashion accent piece. And let me tell ya...the picture does it NO justice. I love how the felting process covered all my sins/mistakes.
Speaking of mistakes, I made a TON. There are too many to remember. But there is one
that was ridiculously huge but I went w/it. Notice the purse has a purl stitch? The directions said to do a stockinette stitch in the round. Well, I DID! But no one told me stockinette in the round is knitting every round. OOPS! So, I went w/my mistake and decided to learn use this lesson as an educational tool for my next stockinette project. BTW, I noticed my mistake after 7 inches of stockinette. Gee....my purse just didn't
look like the example picture!
*sigh* I'm having so much fun.
