The fun thing about felting is that you don't quite know what the item will look like until it's completely felted. Of course, this can also be frustrating -- but usually it's really fun! I mean, you have an idea because you have the item in front of you, but will it really turn out the way you picture? Who knows?!? I'm so happy to say these came out exactly as I pictured them.
First up is a rainbow purse:

Here's another striped purse that is drying. I like to make these because they are a good way to use up any leftover yarn. Since I'm pulling yarn from my stash, the colors are a surprise to me and each one is completely different.
I'm working on more of these and should have a bunch ready for the first craft show on Oct. 13th.
Lastly, just a quick (blurry, sorry) shot of more stuff drying.

The flower pins are really popular, so I've been making lots in many different colors.
I'm jumping in to craft show season with both feet this year. I did only one show last fall, just to see what it's all about. This year I have 8 shows scheduled and will be in shows every weekend beginning October 13th. I'm also considering adding one show in December for a total of 9. I'm so excited!!
What are you working on? Any of you participating in craft shows this fall?
