I am so close to getting that felted bag finished, I can taste it!
I have to fashion some sort of strap for the bag. I believe I will break out, “Mr. Trusty” (that’s my double-ended drop spindle) and “ply” four or five strands of wool together to make a sort of colorful, felt-able rope. I’ll sew it on, and felt the bag. I have yet to make the “envelope flap,” but that won’t take but an hour or so.
I also want to embellish a couple of these patches with a little more whimsical embroidery.
Here’s a peek at my two favorite patches, still under construction…
This is a cool purple rose, easy to do, and the leaves were even easier.
This one is my favorite!
Now here’s where I have to ask you to forgive me.
This is it for the pictures until after Christmas. I want to maintain at least a modicum of surprise for my niece.
I knew you’d forgive me!
Stay tuned! I promise to take pictures as soon as this is finished, and post them right after Christmas.
