Beautiful Summer Handbags

Every woman loves a pretty summer handbag. Whether it be for a special occasion, to go with a brighter summer wardrobe, or just to add a touch of whimsy to a special outfit, here are three great choices!

Flirty Floral Handbag

Garden Fresh Handbag

Flower Basket Handbag

I made all three of these handbags from felted, recycled wool sweaters. The felting process uses agitation and hot water to turn the wool sweater into a soft, but dense and durable "felted" fabric. Even the flowers and leaves of the removeable flower brooches are made from felted wool sweaters! After felting, the sweater is cut apart and "upcycled" into a handbag or accessory. Each handbag is carefully handmade and one-of-a-kind.
