Mother of Purl, er, Pearl





Just one more photo of the diminutive Lucy Bag.

I could not resist adding an oversized button and some pearls to this bag. Maybe I should have saved it for the bigger bag I'll make one of these days. Nah.














Here's a closeup of the cluster of pearls on mother-of-pearl.

Embellishment is part of the fun of felting bags, and I'll probably dude up the next one I make.

She's so pretty with her mother-of-pearl embellishment. It goes with her eyes.

Awesome button!! Not too big at all - I think it makes the bag!
and Re: your last post...I almost always pick out my plain socks to wear first - you're right, by far the most comfortable with shoes. The fancy ones are just so much fun to knit though...Maybe I need to buy bigger shoes!

The bad is beautiful! I love the button and the pearls.

I made the Lucy bag too, but messed up on the first handle and made it too long so had to improvise. I call it Maui Sunset. I really love the small size you made and may just have to make a tiny one too!

The button you addded looks great on the bag! It totally dresses it up! Nice choice!
