Got together with girlfriends to felt.
They both made baby slippers. We all used fibre from New England Felting Supply.
Joanne made hers with short fibre merino:
I used both and made a complex bag with integrated handle and two pockets – one for my iphone and the other for my car keys – the two things I lose most often in the depths of my handbag.
The pockets were intended to be on the outside but after felting the bag knew I had it wrong so I acquiesced and turned the whole thing inside out – and Viola (sp intended!)
A place for everything.
The gussets I set in to give the bag a great shape from the outside look a bit odd from the inside. don’t they? But they will disappear once the bag is full believe me!
I used a fabric stiffener when I made these crowns
I’m thinking that I might use it on the bottom of this back and the gussets to really set them in permanently. I’ll see when the bag dries if it needs that.
