Weekend Project completed

I spent many hours this weekend putting together this Kooba inspired purse and writing out a bulk of the pattern. I felted the bag and I'm pretty happy with the result, but not sure about the closure. This was my second attempt at the purse, and I think I have it where I want it now. Theclay polymer buttons now, but before I compromise the bag and cut a buttonhole, I'm going to check some snap fasteners.

Chunky Ribbed Scarflette

Yeah, that's right! Another post this year! I'm still busy crocheting and designing. I've got two non-scarf projects that I'm working on, but it's getting more difficult to find the time to get it all done with having custom orders for these scarves. There's a purse I want to get finished, I actually created a prototype which I felted, and it shrunk more in length rather than width when I felted it. I don't know if it's the wool I used or not, but at least now I know which direction I need to go in to make it more of what I had in mind. Also, I want to finish a sweater...not sure if I want it to be a cardigan or a tunic. I guess I need to decide since I've got a pretty good start on it already.
