I love the purse and that must be one special cat to have a hand knitted blanket of his own!!

The tree was a tricky thing to do lol! I was looking at bags on ebay and found one that I liked. It was quilted though.

I copied the picture and then cropped it.

And then I resized it and printed it out twice. I then cut the tree out and traced it onto a cardboard box (I think I used a poptarts box). I then traced 1 leaf and used the other copy as a guide on where to place the leaves. I then traced the tree onto pieces of felt (those quarter ones that you can get at Wal-Mart) and did the same thing with the leaves.
Then I sewed it all together onto the bag BEFORE I added the lining, so that the lining hid all of my stitches. It took me a whole day to sew all of those parts on, but I am VERY VERY happy with the outcome.

The clogs are a present for my friend's mom. She has a 9 1/2 size foot where as I only have a size 7 foot. So, after Christmas her Mom is gonna felt her own clogs. I'll tell Rowan to take a picture of them once they are done!! I'm excited to see the outcome too!! Rowan picked out the colors and I wasn't too keen on them when I ordered the yarn, but after seeing the two colors knitted together I think they look SUPER FAB!!
