Felt Purse with Pom-Pom and Crochet Trim

Available in my Etsy shop.
Designed and hand-crafted by Kim Buchheit.
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, that's all the excuse I need to grab a big bag of pink Corriedale wool and get felting. After creating the round felted purse base and letting it dry, I added some vintage-style crochet trim, a beaded tassel, magnetic closure, and detachable pompon brooch. The result is an adorable little hand purse in Neapolitan-ice-cream colors... a sweet gift for you or someone you love.

New colors for the new year: Mulberry, moss, lilac, and teal. This felted wool accessory is fun to give — it will warm hearts as well as wrists this winter. A true conversation piece, so don't wear it if you're feeling shy. When I wear mine, people stop to take a closer look and discover where I got it... love that!

This month I hope to make time to create a few sculptural pieces. My design business is demanding a lot of my time, however. Wish I could make time using wool and water...

Happy 2012!
