I thought I'd share some "firsts" that I made.
Before I finally signed up for book binding classes in Pasadena I made some very small hand-bound booklets - these are my first little handmade books and they are little! They are approximately 2" x 1 1/2" in size:
I also tried my hand at knitting a bag for felting. I had a skein of a soft mohair yarn and some odd yarns of unknown fiber content but I figured it was safe to assume they were polyester. I liked how the colors mixed together so I cast on and made alternate rows to see how it would turn out with some of the yarn felting and some not...here is my first felted bag...
I think it turned out pretty nicely for a first felting on my own!
I will be including the felted bag in the giveaway as soon as the guest judge reaches a decision on the winner of the Joy Doll entries which will be later tonight and announced tomorrow...yes, tomorrow is an exciting day for many reasons and I will post about it all then =-)
In the meantime, have a great day and keep creating!
