Fairy Purse

Wool Felted PurseThis is my brand spankin’ new purse; made by my friend Shadow.

Shadow owns Felt Fusion, and one day while I was browsing her gallery I fell in love with this purse. Well, not this particular purse, but one just like it.


Wool Felted PurseI first “met” Shadow several years ago when she purchased some of my cloth diapers. When I started making Dundies she purchased those from me too. These are some of Shadow’s Dundies – just like me she likes stripes, dots, and bright colors.


Wool Felted PurseI asked Shadow if she’d make a fairy for me, except bigger and with a shorter strap. She agreed, even though she’d never made one the size I wanted.

It’s needlefelted, which I don’t know much about except that it uses wool yarn and seems like a LOT of work. I don’t know what I expected, but it’s soooo much softer than I expected; I can’t stop petting it! I added the snaps so when I pick up my purse upside-down and that’s a definite WHEN, not IF it won’t scatter my lip balm, coupons, tissues, gum, wallet, and other miscellaneous junk across the floor.

That’s not a stain inside the purse, just a spot where the yarn is darker.


Wool Felted PurseThe colors are what first caught my eye, but the fairy captured my heart. Shadow even included some iridescent fibers in the fairy’s wings – she knows how much I love sparklies!

  1. i LOVE the purse! I want one :). I have never heard of Dundies what are they exactly? I know they’re undies. But why the D? Great blog by the way!

    • Melanie,

      I love it too, obviously! 😉 I’ll bet if you contact Shadow she’ll make one for you.

      Dundies are ultra-comfy undies that never, EVER ride up. I’m not sure why the D except the original designer’s name was Davina, so maybe that’s why? I just assumed that was the reason so I never asked her.

  2. Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    • Jerald,

      I’m using self-hosted WordPress. I don’t know php so I started with a free template, then rebuilt it from the bottom up – sometimes a pixel at a time. Someday I hope to find time to learn php but until then I’ll continue with the trial-and-error method of customizing templates.

      Thanks for asking!
