I've got two going to Plain Mabel now that I've got my labels to identify to the world at large that "Yes, I made that!"

Here's a pic of one of them:
This one is Beige.  The bead the keeps the flap closed is a felted bead so the entire thing is pretty much just wool!

wait wait wait.   Huh when you say felted, do you mean the kind you knit first, then throw in the washing machine/dryer to get all fuzzy?  or do you mean the wool/cotton/acrylic felt that you can just buy at the afbric store?

the knitting thing is a bit harder.  otherwise, the felt from the store isn't too bad.

Everything I know about sewing I learned in suture class.

You can also do hand felting!!! I've never tried it, but it involves unspun wool and you can make a bag all lin one peice by folding it over while you are making it.... I looked for some links, but i couldnt find any....hmmmm
