The Bag is Felted

Remember the knitting that mom took on the plane with her to Florida? She FINALLY at long last finished it and tossed it into the washing machine and felted it! All it needs is a button!We've decided on a pretty pewter button and I'm good to go! Where should we go so that I can show off my new purse, mom?!

What a copycat! You do look pretty silly, Mitch! heheheheSo until next time..................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Petra said...

What a BEAUTIFUL purse! I, too, think that you need to take a trip to get some ice cream!

Jake of Florida said...

it's a beautiful purse -- but we don't quite get the connection between knitting, washing machine, and felting.

Actually it's our mom who is a dumb dumb -- so please explain to us so we can explain to her>

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Tell your mom "good job" on the purse. We are glad you get to model it because now it will be the fashion statement of the year ... decade ... whatever. And everydog is right ... you need to go out for ice cream!

That's a great bag. Felting is interesting, how it changes. I love the process.

Princess, Tank and Isaac: The Newfs of Hazard said...

BTW, the ice cream was marionberry swirl - yummy!

i said...

Hehehe Mitch you look really good in blue!

Comet said...

Well, since the purse is blue, we can see how it was confusing for Mitch. I guess he just really wanted a pretty man-bag.

For the record, we think it looks much better on Maggie.

Snowball said...

That is a very nice purse. Your mom is so talented.


Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi Maggie,
I know where you can go with that pretty bag.. you can go to the pizza place or the place where your dad gets you those yummy ice-creams! (pssst.. just make sure that you are the one holding the bag, not Mitch!)... Heehee...

parlance said...

Gorgeous bag. Blue must be your colour!

Poopsie aka Blue said...

What a lovely blue purse!

Seeing this reminded I was going to try felting - will have to look out that pattern your Mom sent me way back.

Love, pats & pets

Simba and Jazzi said...

Your Mummy is so clever.

Stanley said...


Your mama makes some mighty fine felted purses, and YOU are the best model for them. Maybe she could let you walk around town & go into stores all accessorized with your new bag! I bet she'd have more orders than she could ever fill!

You can tell Mitch that when he wears it, it magically changes into a manbag! Gorgeous!

Goober love & smooches,

Aki and Poopie said...

oh goodie! the purse is finished and it looks lovely! we are so glad that your mum made it big enough for you guys.. hmmm.. i bet it would look snazzy with some bones and wentworth's icecream in it. dontcha think?

drooly kisses,


pee-ees. thanks for the bday greetings guys!! love you too!

Dughallmor Beagles said...

Well what a cute little bag, very creative, I am going to have to take up knitting again! We don't think you look silly Mitch, just a little bemused, like 'what just happened?'

Princess Patches said...

Purse OR looks great! Your mom is very talented! It amazes our mom, how different wet felting is from the kind she does! She wouldn't dare get one of her felted doggies wet! We, also, think going for ice cream would be a good place to show off your new purse (or man-bag)!

oh I am glad you are blogging about bags, my blog has been invaded by them too!

You look very smart with the pretty bag Maggie, not so sure about Mitch though!! A man bag would be more suitable perhaps ;0D xxxxx

Dexter said...

Mitch, what's up with the guy purse? I'm curious what you might be packing in there.

Fenway said...

What a coincidence, M&M!!!

M. Alpha just finished knitting a similar bag and is now felting it...washing it over and over in her BigClothesBathMachine. Her's is a natural gray wool that came from sheep she knows on Martha's Vineyard. I like your pretty blue bag and it looks perfect for treats!

Your pal,

It's beautiful! It seems that wintry weather brings the knitties out of lots of humans. I keep reading about crafts that those crazy 2-leggeds are working on!

Hollie and Janie said...

Your mama is so talented! What a fabulous purse/carryall! You and Mitchy are the best models, too. I think you and your new purse need to hit the petstore. It's the perfect thing to keep your treats in!!

Lady Kaos said...

Icecream! You should go get more icecream to show it off!! hehe
It's very pretty!!!

Eduardo said...

Awesome bag Maggie! Your Mommy did a great job!

Chef said...

Stylish purse, Maggie. Your Mama is so creative and I think a pewter button is just perfect. Mitch, if you can balance it on your back you can use it as a knapsack to carry apples in!


Hana said...
