first felted purse

Decided to finally make a felted purse for myself. This photo is what I have done so far. I love the colors and this yarn is Paton's Classic Merino wool. Nice and soft. I actually have another one I started last year but the yarn is stiff and feels itchy. I like this yarn a lot better.
Stay tuned for updates on it. Am using my own design.

Crocheting with Plastic Bags

Well here I am cutting plastic garbage bags into pieces. what fun. I bought this little cutter to cut photos when I do scrapbooking but just found out it works fine on the bags as well.
As I cut the bags and tie them together into a strip, I am winding them into a ball with my yarn winder. I love my yarn winder. Before I had it I would not buy yarn that had to be wound into balls cuz I hated to do it by hand. But now I wind any sort of yarn with it.
Oh and am going to do a mystery crochet pattern on Bumbles Groovey Crochet group with the plastic bags. She said to cut up at least 25 bags. So I only have 21 left to do. hahahha
