As I mentioned before, October 31st marks my one year anniversary selling on Etsy. I started the shop last October to sell my felted bags. They were a big hit at Handmade Arcade a couple years ago, and those who have purchased them online have been happy with them. I named my felted collection “I Felt That!” and these are the bags currently available in the shop:
I love choosing the color combinations for the bags. When I first started felting, KnitPicks offered a sampler of their Wool of the Andes yarn. I received a box containing one of each available color (over 30 skeins, I think) at a slight discount. My friend and I started combining the yarns based on the color names. Asparagus, Pumpkin, and Cranberry. Mist, Cloud and Rain. Spruce, Evergreen, and Fern. Amber was right…. it was YARN PORN!
I had experimented, making some large and small flat bags, but the bucket bags are my favorite pieces. I think the color combos and striping make them unique and they are tons of fun to make.
