Wow! Very cute!  Smiley

I live a knitting life, everything else is secondary. "Want to go out for a drink?" "Nope, sorry, I have a project at home that I'm close to finishing."

I made so many of these, I am flip flopped out.  Undecided
hmmmmmmm maybe time for some snow boots?  Or how about high heels?

I am not obsessed with Perty Thangs, I am disciplined...

I have alot to share, all you gotta do is ask.

Crochet, x-stitch, Ribbon embroidery, plastic canvas, beadwork, polymer clay, wire work, and now TATTING!!  Please help me learn to knit, then I might be complete.

I think other shoes would be fun (there are some lessons/examples at my site if interested), but what I always wanted to get to was little purses!  They are so cute (even when they're elegant), can be simple to do, and the possibilities are literally endless.  The main ones have been clutch or strap-type mini purses but again anything is possible.

Some of the best examples are gone from the web, but here are a few left (there are also some shoes, hats, etc, at some of these):

Debbie Anderson:

Sam Terry of The Bead Ranch made some of the very best ones but they've been offline for a long time.  Hers were simple in construction but all quite different and interesting.  Here's all I still have about them at my site:
"Bead Ranch's many tiny purse "charms" ...many made in (rounded) triangular wedge shapes (reshaped round beads, or covered scrap-clay shapes)....with clay "piping" ...many with beaded handles ...polymer or other doodads or other embellishments for clasp on top of purse (and clay all across)"

lesson on making leather shaped mini purse (or choc. cake) with polymer clay, handles, etc.:
video lesson using one solid clay hunk for the purse (Hearty air-dry clay)
video lesson using a small "binder clip" as a permanent armature (she uses fabric, but could be decorative clay)
