Play Time

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!


  1. First, that fabric is *gorgeous* and second, it made me smile to imagine your playful creative time. I'm sure it will be amazing!

  2. I'm baaacckk! And it only two me two days to fix my blogger problem. I'm looking forward to seeing what you're going to do with this bag!

  3. Oooooh...can't wait to see the result!

  4. I adore being creative like much fun and how green I am at how organized you are....can you give me a transfusion?

The Age of Aquarius has dawned with this bit of clothing fun! I am not sure what to call it. Is it overalls, culottes, a jumper, a culot...
