Spring Felted Bag
Influenced by the blue muscari flowers in my garden I wanted to use my embellisher to make a felted bag. I have needle felted and also partly wet felted the backgrounds. I recently learnt how to crochet flowers so have added them to the front along with lots of stitching, scrunched sari ribbon and beaded lace. The bag is lined with some of my hand dyed purple material. The challenge over at Fiber Arts Mixed Media is "organic" so as wool is very textural and organic this is my piece for that challenge. Very happy with the way it has turned out. I recently bought some more needles for my embellisher and got some great ones from Arthur Ridley..recommend them as he is also a great fibre artist.
