My daughter's birthday combined with my destashing efforts led me to think up felted purses for the girls' goodie bags. Since our theme was "Sweetheart Party", I started with a heart motif knit on straight needles. After two, I realized I needed to switch to circulars to make my deadline. I deleted the heart and hoped to find an embellishment later. I used Lion Brand's Felted Trick or Treat Bag as a starting point and added a striped bottom and a self-charted heart motif.
After eight bags, many ribbon handle auditions, and a bit of painting by my daughter, I give you the Sweetheart Eight. And yes, I'm making you look at every. last. one.
This is the back of one of the hearts - she made faces for her friends, each as different as the bags and girls they were going to.
All ready for the party!
Such a fun project!
