A Work in Progress?

Even though it has a strap and a magnetic closure I'm not sure this bag is done. I've been looking at it for ages without the top folded over and it just wasn't working out. Folding the top over and buttoning it down helped. The strap made it even better. The flower still might get more needle felting. I'm really pleased with the bright yellow happy pocket interior.

Summer Handbags With a Pop of Color

I had a bag full of seashells that I've wanted to incorporate into a felted bag. I thought about felting a face and using the shells for eyes, but the lavender color might have looked either creepy or vacant. Anyway, I like them just as plain shells with some art yarn scribbled around them.

The cotton batik inside really pops. I think I will make a bunch of these handbags in different bright colors just because they make me happy.
