Slow rainy day

I've made progress on a few little items this week. I finished up two little felted baskets. They were supposed to have little handles similar to Booga Bags but I didn't like how scrunched up they got so I opted for a simple handle, instead. Good way to use up scraps of yarn. One was sent to a friend and I plan to send the other one off on Monday morning.



I also made some fun labels to add to items I've sewn (or is it sewed?) , knit or crafted. I got the idea from Karyn (love that new banner, Karyn!) who always has such crafty ideas!! I bought some printable fabric and created a sheet of labels using Microsoft Publisher. Here's one that I put in a wristlet!















I made another wristlet with a gigundo flower made from the Fun to Wear Flowers book and received a big batch of zippers ordered from an eBay vendor so I can make even more.

Bonnie!!! Your tags look fantastic!! How did you attach it to the bag? I don't see any stitches.

LOVE the basket, as you know.

Wristlet looks superb!

Great deal on the zippers; I'm going to copycat.
