What Fun! This little purse was made by Pamela (teddyluvza).Pamela told Threadanimals that her entry "... is Penny, my little pursebear. She is 4" tall and is made from mohair."
This entry was done by Teresa (aka tpterrific ) It is a bear and duck inside an egg purse....about this darling entry she said "this took longer than I thought. It started with a fascination for what to do with allthe plastic eggs we have. My aim was to cover the lids with crocheted pieces,to give an elegant look and they simply snap open. I wanted to make it alsolook like a piece of jewelry which was why I chose the size 10 gold metallicthread. I could have glued the pieces directly onto the egg pieces, but I'm notsure what kind of glue to use and how it will work, so I still will beexperimenting. Given the lack of time, I instead, hand-sewed a 5 inch zipperand stiffened the golden egg. The strap/neclace part is made up of a crochetedrope of 5 single crochet stitches around, worked up with a size 7 hook andmeasures 21 inches long.Wauna Bear was crocheted also with size 10 thread and a size 2 Hook. She hasneedle felting done to her ears, face and paw pads. She measures 2.75 inches. She wears a custom made cape with a bird face since she lives in the egg withher bird friend. Isabella Bird measures 1 inch and is crocheted with size 30thread and a size 12 hook. My dd and I thought it would be cute to have Waunacarry Isabella around since she's so small so I created the little bag out ofsize 8 pearle cotton tatting thread and a size 7 hook. My DD was a good sportto model it and as you can see, they fit perfectly in the egg and she just loves them."
This entry is also from Teresa It is "GREEN" in more ways that one! She explained ..."The purse is a WIP that was started before Dec. of last year for my teendaughter. I graphed out my design based on whashe wanted and then singlecrocheted the pull tabs overlapping as I go, row by row with a size c hook andsize 10 thread. Preping them takes a lot of time which is why it hasn't beencompleted sooner.The tabs all need to be cleaned and dried thoroughly and then I use a littlemetal nail file to file down the jagged part so the thread won't get frayed. Iused 616 tabs in all not including the band along Terra, and "Terra" bear prettymuch sums up the motto to re-use what we can to help save the earth. She is alsomy own creation and is crocheted in size 10 thread with a size D hook andmeasures 4 1/2". "Terra" bear is wearing a pendant made up of a re-used scrabblepiece with the first letter of my daughter's name on one side and a picture ofthe earth on the other."
