Waiting A While & Awards

Well, this item has been waiting a while for me to finish, mainly due to sourcing the purse clasp, but eventually I found just what I was looking for and finally it is done !

::Felted Crochet Ruffle Clasped Purse::

It's crocheted in one of Rowan's new season yarns Cocoon and then machine felted,and finished with a crocheted ruffle,again in Cocoon. 

Finally the purse is embellished with a shore line inspired scrumble.
I really enjoyed working with this yarn, it's incredibly soft , and felts well.

Now, if you fancy making one yourself, I will be running a workshop here on Saturday 28th November, 10-4pm  where you will get started on making the body of the purse, and finish the's then home with full instructions for you to machine felt and sew in your purse clasp - perfect for anyone with basic crochet skills who wants to combine the traditional with freeform crochet techniques !

And as for the award ?

Kindly given by Lyn,
Thank-you !
