BLOG GIVEAWAY: Hand knit Tote in stripes!

Welcome to my March Madness Giveaway...go 'heels!

Striped Lopi Tote...hand knit by me!
naturals tote in browns, greys and blacks

Handknit by me, Heather
of "Heather Knitz"
This bag is truly one of a kind!

*This tote is a finished tote and is ready to ship at once!*

♥c o n s t r u c t i o n
This purse is made from luxurious icelandic BULKY wool YARN...It is amazing to felt. If you are not familiar with felting--it is a process of knitting with 100 percent wool, then putting the object into the washing machine. It is through that process that you actually create "felt"--the end result for a purse is a thick, sturdy shape that is perfect for carrying around all kinds of goodies!

colors used in this striped purse/tote are: black, gray, natural white, shades of brown-gray

♥f i n i s h i n g
The long purse straps are also knit by hand and felted. I used the yarn used to make the striping to coordinate properly. The straps are not flat, rather they are rounded, knotted up and attached to each of the two sides of the purse/tote and are approximately 30" long.
♥s i z i n g
-approx 14" wide and 11" deep
Value $50.00

I agree, the rag wreaths are great. In honor of the tarheels, how about you make some wreaths with school colors. As a UNC alum, my first choice goes for Carolina Blue & White! klborders at aol dot com

I like the id badge holders, especially the lollipop one. Why not add some of the "hard" covered headbands (the kind that aren't elastic, if you know what I mean)?

1. My favorite item is the bangle bracelet / vintage bangle base covered in woven ribbon / green with pink large polka dots. I love wearing bangle bracelets and I think this one is fun and flirty for summer and will look so cute with a pretty sundress or pair of white capris and cute summer top!

2. I love any fabrics that have seashell designs on them so creating a bangle bracelet with those designs on them would be so cute! Incorporating colorful seashell fabrics on any of your items would be appealing to me!

I love this tote that you hand knit! It is spectacular!

I like the rag wreath. I think you may want to add more purses.

I really loved the rag wreaths and the plaid fabric hair pins. It would be great to see purses or totes in your shop...maybe a combination of fabric and knit.

Theresa said...

oops...meant to say thanks for the rag wreath tutorial too :)

I would just love to see more totes like the one you are giving away in some strong and beautiful colors like dark blues, oranges, reds, etc. That would be very pretty! Also I love your tote and think people would love those and in cream color and maybe some smaller ones to use for purses. Really beautiful workmanship!

The heart rag wreath is my favorite!

You could start making some large rag pillows.
A footstool all fixed up with rag finge would be awesome.
My footstool by my computer is a milk crate.
I would love to see some pretty blinged out foot rest.
