Update: This auction has ended and the winning bidder was Krista from The Grand Bakery. Krista won 3 of my auction items this week! Thanks for supporting this great cause Krista:-)
I am so pleased to be able to offer this wonderful handmade felted purse for auction, kindly donated by a local Vancouver crafter. I met Judy from The Knitting Chair at a craft fair last November. We were both vendors there. It was a slow day so we chatted a bit and I encouraged her to open an Etsy shop. I had heard of felting, but I wasn’t sure how it was done. Judy explained and it was fascinating. I love that her craft involves reusing sweaters for a new purpose. I’m all for the green options!
Brown Argyle Sweater Bag
There are more photos that show different views of this bag on the Etsy listing here. Just don’t buy it over there because we need it for the auction! It has long handles for easy shoulder wearing. Judy has thrown in another tiny matching purse as well. You can see it peeking out in the photo at left.
Judy will ship this item anywhere in North America.
Here’s what she says about her crafting:
“I really don’t like to make the same bag twice (unless you twist my arm and I still have some of the wool left) so after knitting many bags I’ve started to design my own. I rescue wool and sweaters from thrift shops and try and create a unique bag”
