Ready for some felt-love?
First up was a bracelet kit I had purchased in Houston. I made it primarily to use as a sample at the shop, since I placed a substantial order with the company. This is a teaser-- you will go bananas when you see it all arrive.
After that, I pulled out some green felted wool fabric, and wrapped it around some cardboard cylinders that I happened to have around.
And what is that little animal you may be asking???
That little puppy is a needle felted dog!
Finally, do you remember the time when I started to knit a sweater and then had to stop because I couldn't buy any more wool to finish it? Well, I did NOT rip out the sleeve that I had knitted. Instead, I have turned it into a purse.
I decided to use this lovely turquoise silk to line it, also adding an iron on interfacing to give it a bit more body. The lining is definitely necessary so that the bag does not stretch all out of shape>
I love it! It is by Sang Woo company, and it is Detachable!! Yes, you can buy one handle and use it interchangeably on more than one bag. Brilliant!
