|Felted leopard handbag hook holding|
a leather bag I hand-painted with a
leopard print after accidentally
splattering it with nail polish.
The problem was, I couldn't really find one I liked. The solution: I decided to make some, of course. So here are my latest felted purse hangers. My favorite designs are the ones that look like the swirled branches of the animal print trees I'm so fond of painting. It's really fun to take a design from one medium and translate it into another. I love combining bold beautiful colors with leopard, giraffe, tiger, and ocelot patterns. It's a lot of work to needle-felt these intricate little animal prints and swirls, but I think they're worth it. I also made some purse hooks with yin yang and peacock motifs that I'll be adding to my shop soon. Next, I think I'll try making some of these designs into rings and pendants too.
