Knitting and Felting Passion

I was teaching a knitting class to students at the elementary school where my own children used to go. We made some really nice felted bags together and I was inspired to make some more bags for myself. It was fun and creative and used up some of my embarrassingly large stash of yarn as well. I decided the bags needed some adornment and used some of my own jewelry and buttons to spice things up.

Soon I had a large collection of bags and started collecting vintage brooches and buttons to embellish and add style and uniqueness to each bag.

Now the stash was a bit smaller, but the bags were taking over, so I gave a few away as gifts. Whenever people saw them, they encouraged me to sell them. And now here they all are on Etsy!

Also available in my shop are hand knit hats, scarves, throws and mittens.
