More Felty Fabulousness

Our clocks went forward last weekend, (yes, we change them here in Britain twice a year) thus heralding the start of the Great British Summer, (or lack of it!!). So let's hear it for Bank Holidays, ice-creams on windy beaches, sand in our sandwiches and of course, cream teas. It's time to wear a smile and be dreadfully optimistic that finding a parking space in Brighton at the weekend will be a breeze.

Back at Squirrell HQ with thoughts of warm days and good times it is time to air the summer wardrobe, pack away the big winter woollies and rummage in search of my warm weather favourites. Whilst hunting for a cardigan or something or other, I came across a bag I made ages ago which I had totally forgotten about. Hand-felted from a kit bought from Gilliangladrag, it was quite simple to make and has enough quirky charm to really brighten my day.

From this...

To this!
With colours to make your eyes sting, flowers galore
and a strong 70s 'vintage' vibe, this is one
for summer.
