packing my bag


I made myself a little something last night, a wet-felted wool bag.  It's a big one, 14" wide and 12" tall, not including the handles.


I wasn't totally happy with the handles.  I wanted to be sure they would hold up over time, so I twisted them and sewed them up into a tube of sorts.  The next time I'll do this step in the felting, but this works for me.


It's our spring break and while I wish I could say that I was packing this baby full of reading materials and some sunscreen and heading off to somewhere warmer, we'll be spending our week at home instead.  I'll be taking a little break, working on some home projects, and hanging out with the kids and enjoying this weird streak of warm weather.


I'll be back soon, hopefully with lots of fun stuff to share.

Take care!

This is absolutely beautiful. I love the blue felt and the mushroom is lovely. I have a soft spot for mushrooms as my Mum used to make little porcelain ones in her ceramic classes.

Love that bag! The mushroom came out fabulously! Enjoy your spring break, isn't it nice that the weather looks like it will be warm this week? Instead of the week after spring break which is what usually happens.
