I Heart Handmade

imageBookhou was having a destash pop up on the weekend, selling seconds and scraps for the shop as well as friends-of-the-shop like Xenia Taler. I stopped by. There was a table of vintage fabric finds as well. That’s where I found this assortment of handmade treasure, and all for only $2!!!

I especially love the felt handbag pictured below. Back in my grandmother’s day, because local TV stations aired craft shows and at the end of the program if you wanted to make the project, you could send a bit of cash and a self-addressed envelope and they would mail you the instructions. I still have such a letter for a similar felt appliqué purse that was addressed to my grandma.
