I explore, experiment, and intuition is my way of going about making all my textiles. I start with colors—putting them next to each other…sometimes it takes weeks for me to figure out what will go with what…and the where is an ongoing process during the weaving (or crocheting…or felting). I learned to wet felt last year (self taught…what a surprise)…and I love it.
I make one of a kind textiles, non-reproducible (I’ve tried) , unique…..as you will see (and feel hopefully).
This one of a kind and unique clutch is just bursting with color, ready to go to a party, to cocktails, work..anywhere. The truth is she just wants to be seen!!!
Crocheted in two shades of rosie pink and bulky rainbow…she then went for a swim in hot water and soap, and came out beautifully felted and strong.
Spunky hand felted blossom in handspun/handyed rainbow with black petals and a huge pinback so you can wear it on your coat, scarf….
she is 10-12″ wide
and 8″tall (without handles..add 3 more inches)
