Shades of Grey

I've been in a crafting frenzy lately. I was recently accepted to my very first craft fair, at St. Gregory the Great in Hamilton, NJ, and I really need to beef up the stash of goods. I have some slippers, hats and purses. But I need more!

I found this wonderful pattern on Etsy -- where else! -- and knew I would have to make this bag. 
This is the Casual Girl Purse created by Rachels Crochet.
This bag was a real pleasure to make. The pattern calls for this to be made in two colors but it can easily be made in one color as well. The bag is completely assembled before felting, so the stitches very nicely "melt" into each other. It is a really lovely purse, with a retro feel.

This bag was made with two shades of grey from the Patons Classic Wool line. It is so soft, I'm half tempted to stuff the bag, sew it shut & use it for a pillow!

I'm offering this purse for sale in my Etsy shop. I'm also happy to make the purse in any other color combo. Just let me know what you fancy and I'll have a purse done for you in 1-2 weeks.
