Ok, first, kitty purse.

I've been searching all over for a decent cat purse, especially after Nicole posted about her amazing crocheted poodle purse. I thought "hey, I can just crochet my own cat purse. Oh wait. I can't crochet."

So that was the end of that.

Until I remembered Julie had given me a couple of darling vintage kitty pillow cases, yet to be made into pillows. Some pillow fluff, a lining, and a zipper later, kitty purse!

I love that he kind of looks like a stuffed animal. Very cuddly.

The boots are something I've been very excited about getting for weeks. I've worn them before, but the soles were really thick and kept falling off, and just a little too 70s for my wardrobe. So I took them to JDs Shoe Repair and they made them perfect! I got them from the cobblers and put them right on :)

The rest of the day was awesome, I went to lunch and shopping with grandma, lunch #2 and Anthropologie with Sam, and now relaxing at home :)

Could you do a demo blog on how your made the kitten bag. I really want one. I suppose having the magic material is the key ingredient though. I'm turning utterly green with envy!! ;0)

How cute an outfit! I agree the new heels make the boots so much better. And I love the handknits, too. I really need to knit myself a yellow sweater, I've been thinking that for awhile now!

Shallow Mallow said...

A cuddly handbag (your sewing ideas rule!) that gorgeous cardi (knitting skill envy) and most excellent boots!

You look great :) Sounds like a fun day too. Have a brilliant weekend!

The boots turned out great! I also love, love, love that dress. Just the prefect combination of tailored and bohemian.

Milly Darling said...

That has to be one of the most adorable outfits i've ever seen!

Meg Carroll said...

I absolutely love your cardigan. However, I only have experience in knitting plain knit scarves, and not fabulous ones at that. My Grandma is a pro knitter, but she retired from the sport because apparently 'Mum didn't appreciate it as much any more' when we were toddlers covered in rashes. Perhaps I could revive her back to her wonderful knitting days. I love your dress and kitty purse too! You're my inspiration.
