Tea anyone?

Two days early on a Zakka sew-along project is reason to celebrate with a tea party! For this clutch I used a felted wool from a sweater I had bought some time ago.  I originally used pieces of it for a pin cushion.  Even though it is a wool piece, the lavender color and white linen corners give it a "springy" look.  The zipper pull was an ornament from a hair clip that had lost it's clip!  I love using what I have to create something new.  A recent post on Purse Palooza (purse patterns reviewed and prizes offered!) featured a bag from Carolina Fair, on which she used felt as an interfacing.  I tried it on this bag and love the soft, just right feel it gives the bag.

Back to the tea party -- what kind of tea would you like?


  1. Your pouch is really wonderful. You did a great job using what you had and making it look great.
