Kaari Doesn't Do Cute.

My soon-to-be-five-year-old niece, Kaari, is a tomboy to the extreme. And she's very adamant about it. Not long ago, when my mom was discussing the possibility of Kaari getting to decorate a room of her own, Mom suggested that they could find something really cute.

Kaari gave her a look of disdain and replied, "I don't do cute, Grandma."

So that left me with a challenge: I'd promised Kaari that I'd make her a felted purse for Christmas, but it couldn't be cute. So I had to wing it. She likes purple, so I went with purple. And she likes things with fur, so I went with fur. And it had to be big -- because she needs something to carry all of her coloring books and Matchbox cars. I started it on Thursday, and I finished it on Sunday. Gotta love a quick project! Here's what I got, pre-felting:



I was so eager to see how it turned out that I felted it on Monday night, and here she is -- Kaari's Not Cute Felted Purse:



All it needs now are a couple of not-cute decorative buttons and a little velcro.

So hey...speaking of FOs, wanna see the Fabulous Christmas Sweater? Click the link below.

Love the sweater, and I hate to say it, but that purse is so cute. "I don't do cute grandma" really made me laugh.
