I recently became a member of the Etsybloggers Street Team - which is very exciting as it combines two of my favorite things; Etsy and blogs! - and they have a thing called the blog carnival. The most recent of these gives us a choice, either to write a post about our favorite creation, or our favorite way to keep cool in the Summer.
Well, my favorite way to keep cool is to go and jump in our local lake, but I decided to write about my favorite creation.
It was actually very hard to choose, but I think this won over because it continues to be a source of inspiration, and it has also become my avatar and banner for my etsy shop, and goes a long way towards how I view my overall image.
It's called 'purple coneflower', and is a beautiful small felted bag, similar to a clutch, but with handles for ease of carrying. It's perfect for an evening out, when you only need a few items like money, keys and cell phone. Felting wool is my favorite thing to do, and choosing designs and embellishing it afterwards is just icing on the cake!
It was a difficult choice, as one of my new favorites is my 'spring greens' bag, the same size as the purple one, but in a beautiful green with an image inspired by my daughters painting, which I was also very proud of.
It's great to be inspired to make a particular blog post by the blog carnival - can't wait for the next one! Thanks Etsybloggers.
