Day 48: Fiber Heaven

I had a great creative day.  I found a replacement stash of hand dyed wool to work with (thanks to Eagle Creek Quilt Shop in Shakopee, MN) and I then went to The Yarn Garage in Rosemount, MN which was AMAZING.  I found a lovely selection of unique fibers to work with and I absolutely fell in love with texture and materials this afternoon.  I have been working on little bags, zippered/folded/buttoned/fabric/crochet/knitt/embellished.  This is my product for the day.  All of the details are hand sewn ruffles from a skein of ribbon type "yarn."  I have clear plastic pockets for my check book, a pen or make-up, cash, license/insurance cards, and the top one is most available for the debit/cash card.

 Then the sides fold over and the whole thing folds up and buttons closed.  The wool doesn't need finishing on the edges since it is felted already.  This was a super fun project!

I used the wool and ribbon sample from yesterday and I wrapped it around a used ribbon spool.  There were two ribbon spools (one thick and one thin) and the thin spool fit tightly inside the thick spool to make a pretty cool little container.  I added some paper on the inside for an additional "surprise" element.  I will save all of my used ribbon spools from now on for making these cute little containers.

Below is a picture of the yummy yarn-type fibers from The Yarn Garage.  Feel free to drool!  I love these textures!
