Last night was "palette time". This is that fun spell when you know just vaguely what you want to make. In this case it is a felted bag. That's all I know. So I started pulling out fibers and fabrics and patterns. I will stare at these for a while today, move them around, and make a decision. Hopefully I will be cutting by afternoon. I have no idea at this point where I am going with this other than that I will use my pattern I designed for the leather and lace bag. I think part of my play time will be bringing out the felter and trying some different fibers with that as well. Did anyone see that needle felted silk chiffon gown in Sew Beautiful? Spectacular! I digress....... I might do some sparkle with the angelina, or maybe a red heart would be nice on this houndstooth, or maybe a monogram, just not sure yet.
The base fabric will be this wool hounds tooth coating I got at Fabric Fix before Christmas. I brought it home and felted it. It cooperated nicely. It has been glaring at me every day, however, as I made my way through all the Christmas sewing. Now it's time has come. We'll see what I come up with.......Bunny
I am loving my new wall unit!
