tiny violet hand puff
its a tiny violet hand puff.. my latest design ♥
over 200 crocheted and felted violets are crammed and smushed together because i forced them to be in love with each other.
the inside of this little puff is lined with white purr-soft angora ♥
i wore it around my neck on a green velvet ribbon when i went to stonehenge overnight..... it kept my porpies so warm!
porpies are hands. danielle and i used to pretend our hands were dolphins and make them swim in the air... somehow porpoise porpoise turned to porpie porpie and it stuck. i still call them that always.
i think this little puff will come in handy in the fall... but i cant help that i finished it in the summer. i will like to wear it with a black coat.
when i said i fell down in a patch of violets i wasnt kidding. i was totally surrounded... i crocheted little violets like i was shelling peas... i tossed them in a little basket for months before i had enough.
want to make your own? ive written up the pattern
the pattern uses knitting & crochet and sport weight & chunky wool.
it is shaped so your hands kind of *pop* in just like a real victorian muff.
hehehe i said muff.
