Kristen's felting

This is the third in a series of cunning little felted purses that Kristen made as Christmas gifts for friends. She bought this way cool cat button at L'Atelier last week, and he looks very pleased with himself to be on such a snazzy felted object. The colors, in case they don't reproduce accuretely, are a bright pink with leaf green contrast. Note the knitted in buttonhole.

Felting is so much fun. At some point, magic happens and the entire look and feel of the piece changes. Felt is an intrinsically cute fabric, and when it's been shaped by one's own hands, the result is just amazing.
