Green Felt Bag
A month or so ago I posted a photo of a piece of felt I made using a combination of wet and needle felting. I turned that into the green bag above, with a wet-felted, wool rope handle. The interior of the bag is lined with linen and it is stitched together with DMC cotton floss using a blanket stitch. The little bag above it is a "wallet" or eyeglass case, made of contrasting colors and a few accent colors echoing the larger bag. I will be embarking on another similar project soon, and will post step-by-step photos and instructions. Oh, the bag still needs a button closure, and I will be working on that too.
