More Playtime with Cupcake Cradle Purses

Post image for More Playtime with Cupcake Cradle Purses

So, in between finishing up custom orders, washing, dyeing or spinning wool, I’ve been busily creating a collection of cradle/play purses just for you & your littles!  They are all hand knit with my hand spun and dyed wool. These are perfect for taking along for quiet play anywhere or anytime.  They’re luscious chocolate & vanilla with various types of icing.  One even has sprinkles!

I try to source all my fibers directly from the farm.  The chocolate wool came from a small farm where a sweet, but naughty dark Merino ewe named Diva lives.  The cream & white are both all natural colors as well, that came from Polypay, Wensleydale & Merino sheep.  I purchased the fleeces freshly shorn, then washed, spun into them yarn.

The large cupcake white icing trim was naturally bleached with hydrogen peroxide.  I carefully dyed the wool with professional acid dyes to stand the test of time & play.  The only ingredient not lovingly spun by me is the cotton floss I use for the sprinkles & other trim, such as the butterflies & the tiny caterpillar hiding inside the butterfly purse.
