I must admit I'm a bit of a duffer when it comes to social media.. but I do like Pinterest! It's a bit addictive I think. ANyway.. I just wanted to share this bag I made recently. Inspired by this beautiful ancient Egyptian blue faience bowl that I spotted on Pinterest. This is my felted bag version of it :)
|I used on of Sharry's gorgeous handmade ceramic buttons :)|
|I stretched silk caps over the resist so the show on the inside. There are|
2 integral internal pockets, one on each side.
|With a tiny flap and handle loops|
|Drawing the dancer from thin strips of merino fibre|
|and the on the front a musician with lotus and papyrus border.|
|Part way through felting, just after removing the resist.|
|Some smaller details were lost during felting, but I think that|
works too.. gives it a slightly aged effect.
|I love the dancer :) did think about adding a few beads|
but I think I'm going to leave it be.
