in the bargain bin, and the LYS lady told you it was discontinued, would you pass that:
up for only $30?? summer top out of purple..and i just looooove the orange. and i figured since i was breaking the diet anyway, i may as well take every ball they had...all 11 of them. sigh. Tahki Cotton Colori, you are sooo pretty.
i got a package from my SP today!!! Patons Kroy in the prettiest color and a "Fluted Banister Socks" pattern. this will be so much fun!

my toes are cold as my slippers are still wet..

I made a simple rectangle, and left extra material at the top in order to have room to put in the zipper. I measured where I wanted the zipper to open, marked it, and sewed it in. I then folded under the top edge to hide the end of the material, and made a nice 'placket' on each side of the zipper.
I made a new zipper stop (in white thread) and cut off the excess. you can see my plackets nicely in this picture.
You can see in the first picture that my lining is slightly wider than the purse itself. this is to allow for some 'stuffage' I only had to stretch the felt a tiny bit to fit in the lining. I then pinned only my placket to the felt, all the way around. Took out a needle and some white thread, tacked it in and, VOILA!!
Enjoy those instructions, if they will ever help you! I am very pleased with how this turned out.

and my ballet slippers, yay! lamb's pride worsted which took seriously 8 times longer than the cascade to felt. the purse only took 10 minutes, this took FOREVER. but well worth it cuz they are nice thick and fuzzy and fit well. a pic of them on my happy toes once dry
that's it for now! time to go eat pizza and cut out lining for my purse before working tonight
