a date with the washer

Sophie is ready to felt

Sophie is in the washer as I type. I decided to crochet a couple of flowers to cover up the prongs of the magnetic clasp but I was too scared to assemble it all pre felting in case my dodgy crochet felted really badly or some other disaster struck. The pattern for the flowers and the crochet instructions were found on line while using a friend’s computer last night and I don’t have links to either of them. If she hasn’t closed the windows yet I will get her to email me the links and post them later.

Sophie is ready to felt

Update! The flowers are the violets from this pattern. I learned how to do the stitches here and fell in love with this table cloth along the way.

You ARE a speedy knitter! The flowers look great, no dodginess about them at all. Can’t wait to see it “out of the wash”. Happy holiday…

Love the Sophie bag and the flower. You are so creative. I felted a Sophie bag for the Preschool Silent Auction. I needle felted a flower on the bag. It was auctioned off for US$45.

Ah, these colors make me want to go South where it’s hot and sizzling. They are fantastic. And the flowers are too cute.
