and having yarns in my stash I felt were close enough to those colors,
I started a knitting project to make a felted handbag using an adaptation of a basic pattern.
I knit the main color of the bag a lavender similar to the blue potato peelings and the flap a contrasting garden green, though not quite the same as the green of the leeks or tomatillo husks, with a seed stitch border.
I felted it in the washing machine then added carrot-colored embroidery and an earthy-looking button. It's an inspired NOT earth toned, earthy handbag -definitely NOT everyone's style- but I'm kinda liking the funkiness.
