WESTie Wednesday with Anel of Imagine Yarn!
Welcome to WESTie Wednesday, where each week we get to know a proud WEST member and their Etsy shop! Learn about Anel and her shop Imagine Yarn.
"At Imagine Yarn, I sell two different lines. I sell crochet and felt completed purses which range in sizes. I love making these and they make great gifts. I have also put together kits to make the purses. The kits for the felted purses include a pattern I wrote with clear directions, the metal purse frame and 100% unwashed wool from Norway. I also have a makeup bag purse kit that includes a pattern I wrote, metal purse frame and 100% cotton. One of my favourite purses is the Miss Daisy. The kit includes a pattern written by a South African designer friend, South African 100% cotton or merino wool and a purse metal frame. The Miss Daisy purse includes a lovely quote that a friend helped me write.
I am originally from South Africa, a country with lovely cotton and merino wool. I believe crochet and knitting are moving in a very exciting new direction. Handmade crochet items are more modern with a lovely old world charm. This process is what inspired me to start my shop.
We asked Anel “Why Etsy?”
"My friends and family were encouraging me to sell the lovely purses I made for them, so I thought I would give this a try."
