This is where I landed. I am making a simple felted wool bag. It is the same pattern that I developed for the leather and lace bag shown here. The seams will be on the outside. I am almost done appliqueing the flower on to the bag. These are hand dyed wools. I did the green for the stem and leaves and purchased the red eons ago. I treasure my hand dyeds. You can always use the teeniest pieces and they add such depth. They can be pricey but I think worth every penny. This is not the completed flower. It will be three dimensional. There are a couple of ways I could go and I will experiment to see what works best. Sample flowers can always be used somewhere.
This bag is for a friend in NH, one who has been particularly kind to our children so sort of a thank you gift. She doesn't have a clue and I know does not read this blog. I want to line this with some red poly. I don't think it will take long to do this. Then I may be on to another bag for a barter situation I have going on.
That is the news today from the very, very cold Northern Tier of NY. I got up this morning to 21.5 below zero at about seven AM. Right now it is 0º under bright afternoon sunshine. Brrrrrr......stay warm, Bunny
