Felt Like A Norwegian

Felted pouches with polymer clay buttons. All handmade.
It takes a little over an hour to knit these small teardrop pouches and when I first started I couldn´t stop. They are so adorable and since my knitting is uneven every one of them comes out different.

I felt them in the washer a couple of times before taking the last felting by hand.

A gorgeous knitter and felt artist had made her pattern public and I recommend a visit to Claires etsy shop.

You can buy her pattern for these or find more felted items.

The buttons are homemade of polymer clay. This old cane got very distorted under reducing - but I think the flag buttons made a little spark to the pouches.

These are very versatile. You can use them for jewelry, to hide secrets in or just put them on a table for a woolly addition to the interior.

They are also a wonderful giftbag. I´m planing on using them as what ever comes to mind. I was planing to use up some of my stash yarn. But ended up bying more to get even more colors. I already knitted four more of these. I´m not going to stop. More polymer clay buttons are also planed.

Did I mention that four arms would be a nice thing - and of course even more hours a day?
