Sea Anemone with Tentacles – Locker Hooked Purse

April 11, 2014

I’ve had this locker hooked purse design in my head for some time. I was doing some spring cleaning and was planning to donate old t-shirts.  It was time. I pulled out an old gray t-shirt and got started. The result is this little purse I call the Sea Anemone. I need to make more in different colors!

It’s locker hooked on 3.3 mesh canvas with t-shirt strips layered with torn grey drapery sheer strips on top. It’s attached to a chrome purse frame with rods. The loops are locker hooked in variegated length to create the body. I pulled out the tails of t-shirt strips to create the tentacles and added a few more. A few snips, a bit of glue and stretching, plus a light touch of luminescent gold paint on the tentacles finished them. More tentacles?!? I’m still debating the chain handle/strap–would something out of fabric be more appropriate? Hmmm…I do love the way it turned out and I can easily change the handle.

I had a swatch of leftover grey cotton knit and a small swatch of tapestry fabric I used to create the lining. I also added a small square of sari fabric I recycled for a pocket. Some hand stitching, some machine stitching plus glue, and the lining was attached.

The new Vintage Weave fabric strips in spring colors came in and they just made me smile. The colors are gorgeous. They remind me of spring, so fresh and vintage-y in a cool retro kind of way. I just had to create something. Problem was I didn’t have that much time–mostly because I’m late in...
