I got caught up in doing a great Bag exchange with a super "New" friend, Cathy, in Vancouver! My problem was I kept changing what I wanted to do for her!!!!
August is the last vestige of Summer so WATERMELON, of course!
Hence, the August flap WASN'T done in July as planned! Here it is, it did go out while there was time to finish it in August!
September is almost done so look for it in you emails!!!
I have plans for the rest of the year and a great set of ideas for next year as well! (Though your thoughts and ideas can always be part of flaps too!)
I will be doing a new bag for next year but rest assured this year's flaps will work on both! Imagine 48 different looks! I haven't settled on a shape or style for next year so if anyone has a strong preference let me know!
I can design anything based on even a photo idea! here's to the rest of the year!

It really wasn't hard to do and I am excited to share photos of it with you here! Those in the Flap of the Month Club will be receiving it in a day or so! I finished the flap in two days...(and that included the design time!) So don't panic when you see it...it only looks intricate!
Till next time!

How about Easter Eggs tucked into grassy yarn for April this year! Sweet colors and it makes a fun Easter bag.

This is the February flap for the Flap-of-the-Month Purse!
A valentine bobble flap! The design of this purse allows you to change out the flap each month (or more often) to suit the season or your mood!
The Club is simple. For $15.00 you get the original purse pattern and the current flap sent to you via email.
Then, once each month you get the next month's flap sent to you. It is set up on an automatic system and you will receive it the month before. For instance, the June flap will be sent the first part of May allowing you time to knit it up before June. If it is a holiday theme for a holiday that occurs early in the month it may be sent a bit earlier!
Each flap is designed to work with the basic purse and will attach to it interchangably! Some flaps will have a button closure, others will not-that will be part of the design!
Each pattern will come with a list of the yarn(s) used and other supplies as well as the gauge it was done in. You are welcome to change the yarn to suit your tastes but if you do PLEASE do a swatch to be certain that the gauge is correct!
Some of the flaps are felted like the purse. Others have yarns that are chosen that are not felted. I use only yarns that are available in most areas or online so you will not be left out in the cold! Some flaps are available in kit form (especially those with several colors because you won't need much of any color for a flap!) Those are offered separately to Club members!
Most Flaps are straightforward in design. However, flaps are an excellent place to try something new without commiting to a BIG project! And help from me concerning any directions will always be available!
I did my purse in a cream color, however you could easily do this in black or any other color to suit your taste.
