Felted Purse Paired With Raku Fish Pin

First, a little documentation of a sunny day in Maine.

Here is my hand knitted wool purse that has been keeping me busy during our rainy spell. It did not come out as I intended, but if you haven't seen the original pattern you would not know. I used a pattern out of Ella Ray Book #8. This is the pre-felted picture of it.





Here is the finished purse with one of my raku fish pins added to it.



Rather than drill a hole into the fish, I wrapped it with black linen thread to secure it to the purse.


Did I mention the sun was out again today?




Proof, just in case anyone in Maine missed it.

Lovely pictures and purse. A friend of a friend that I used to know did raku pottery. He always had a party on firing day. Quite fun, they never let me try it though, 'fraid I'd burn myself I guess. Probably a good call.

Smiles,
Lisa

I, living in Maine, was reading your post and was so confused, because it's been raining there most of the day. Then I realized, you posted on Monday and today is Tuesday!! Love your purse and raku pin.
