About I'd like to let you know where I will be showing my crafts. I also take special orders if you have particular colors or a theme in mind.
Oddkin Handbags cover
Description My dad, Don Whaples, used to make 4 needle mittens and braided rugs with repurposed and recycled materials. A number of years ago, I noticed a lot of small balls of yarn being sold at the church thrift store where I worked. Most of this yarn were leftovers from Prayer Shawls that folks were making. I started buying up the odd bits of yarn along with buttons, bangles. and beads there at other thrift stores and yard sales. At first I made my handbags for fun. And when I wore one and someone commented on it , I would empty the contents of handbag into a plastic grocery bag I learned to carry. The bag was theirs with the understanding that if anyone was interested in getting their own, they should contact me. That didn't happen. My daughters said that they should be sold instead of given away so that I could pay myself back for my labor and afford more materials. I have displayed in a few places but mostly its the yearly Winooski PTO Craft Sale in November that I sell at. I am very much interested in getting these one of a kind bags out there in other shops because they are so different. And I believe there a lot of people in Vermont, or coming to Vermont, who dare to be different....
