Mom's Birthday Bag

Mom's birthday present this year was (surprise!) a felted bag. I used different colors in it as you can see but I also mixed in a little gold cord for a little contrast to the wool. The front flap goes to the side for a different look and is covered in felted flowers. It was a lot of fun making this bag but lots of work that turned out to be worth every minute I spent on it. I think she liked it... She's asked for another, which is on its way of being completed, although it is taking a long time for me to figure out exactly what I want on it. Sometimes good things take a little longer to transpire.

Enjoy the bag mom, stay tuned for your next one.

Roving... New Possibilities

Thank you Cheryl, Acorn to Oak, my favorite stitcher, for showing me new possiblities. I am so excited to start needle felting and using this technique as embellishments for my purses and bags. You are such an inspiration, and Saturday was just so much fun. Thank you again for alowing all of us to get our hands... soapy!!!
