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.
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!
