Felting - The Watermelon Tote

As I mentioned in my first post, I like to make felted items. I've made hats and slippers. And purses! Lots and lots of purses! I can't get enough of them. When I saw a pattern for a watermelon tote, I knew I would have to make it. And I knew who to give it to. Mom!
Pattern by Pomquat.

Before this pattern, I had never made anything with beads. I admit to being a little intimidated, but once I got the hang of it, it was very simple. Mom loves this purse and carries it everywhere.

I've made a few since this one. I gave one to my aunt and have another ready to go into my Etsy store. I also have one that's not quite finished. I made it with a deep pink that looks like very ripe watermelon. I'll post a pic when it's done.

I may keep it for myself. ;-)

Who says felt is for winter only?
