Fashion Forward?

I am not, by any stretch of the imagination, a fashion trend-setter. I do my best to look presentable with what I can buy at Target or Lane Bryant. Occasionally, I watch What Not To Wear (US version) and I own the book written by the creators of the UK version. I have sort of a loose understanding of what’s in style and an even looser understanding of what looks good on my body, but I’m a stay at home mom. My primary goal is to be comfortable while chasing children and managing a household without wearing pajamas all day long.

Imagine my utter surprise when Buzz Feed posted these links. Now check out this, my little felted bag from January. And that’s not even the original. I based the dimensions on a tiny purse my friend Jen gave me as a bridesmaid gift when she got married 11 years ago (the strap on it finally gave out and I needed a replacement). I am really on the cutting edge of a new fashion trend or am I just having delusions of grandeur again? Oh dear.

Don’t forget to take the poll and leave a comment on yesterday’s post to enter the drawing for a set of hand-crafted stitch markers (made with Swarovski crystal beads!).

  1. I loved that bag! I’m so glad that you did too! I wonder if I could work a stranded colorwork design into the pattern you created…awesome!

    Fashion Forward – Definitely!

    :D

  2. I’ve been using tinybags forever. My first favorite was from Banana Republic and got swiped from my car at some point. Got a replacement at a little place in Montreal. Still have and love that one, but needed something a little bigger to accommodate my camera and sock-in-progress, so the current fave is a Guatemalan fabric bag. That one’s becoming threadbare now, so I plan to felt something new. It won’t be knitted and fulled; this will be loose roving wet felted to a fabric base, lined with rip stop nylon, similar to the bottom R pic of this post: http://livnletlrn.blogspot.com/search?q=dabbling . Other than the camera and sock-in-progress, all I need is keys and a bank card and I’m ready to roll. :-)

    Also lovin’ Jen D’s idea of a stranded colorwork fulled tinybag.

  3. I haven’t felted in a long time and recently got excited about it all over again. I’m working on a Noni bag now, but I’ve got your mini purse next in line. Thanks for sharing the pattern.
