Upcycle Never Looked So Sweet

Several years ago I was looking for a new way to use up woolen, jackets, old sweater and extra yarns - yep, long before up cycling/recycling was very popular I knew it would not be long. I decided to make a sweet little purses that could be used for all sorts of things. They debuted at the Estes Park Wool Market some ten years ago and a local shop owner saw them as I was setting up my booth and she purchase all 6 dozen of them. WOW!!

Fast forward to now and I am still making them - a popular item for those who come to the farm and those local shops who continue to order them for their spring inventory. So I have new one's done and I am placing some up in the Etsy shop -

You can read about the construction of these darlings - trust me they will last and last... I do have many color combinations and will put them up as I can but you can always contact me and we can talk colors.

Their uses are endless - great for weddings, bridal showers, baby showers, birthday gifts and Mother's Day lovelies - I love them for special treats for Easter and even have had many Mom's purchase them as their little girls first purse. What would you use them for??
