Every princess needs a bag and crown

Last week I found this tutorial showing how to make a bag from a felted sweater. I have a plastic crate in my sewing room dedicated to all the good will sweaters I have felted with intentions of turning them into oh so awesome things. When I found the tut I knew I had the perfect sweater to use. It wasn’t one I was in love with so I figured it was worth a shot.

It turned out pretty nicely. I was even pleased with my first attempt at making roses from some scrap pieces of felted sweater.

The next day our 7yo Emi saw the bag and wanted to know if I could make one for her. It was a busy out of the day house so I had to say “not today but possibly tomorrow.” the next morning I surprised her with this felted sweater.

She was excited and of course pulling out the cutting Matt and cool cutting tools attracts your sister and of course dragons

We worked on the bag together and made it to the sewing machine quicker than I expected seeing as a couple of elephants showed up.

I promptly sewed the bottom of the bag wrong and spent the next 10min demonstrating my awesome seam ripping skills. When I finally got it right she was very happy.

And of course the other two wanted something too. Luckily for me I had 3 felt crowns pretty much all cut out and ready to be sewn together. They were meant to be a Christmas present but obviously that didn’t happen. So more sewing commenced and voila!
