This week I spent some time visiting my friend Maureen of Dreamspin Fibres. It’s nice to felt with a friend.
I decided to make a project bag for a spindle, so long and thin. I used this lovely rust, terracotta and brown variegated wool.
Here I am laying out the wool. I did 4 layers.
After 3 layers I added some thick felt for some texture.
Then some leaves in various colours of prefelt. One was a solid colour and 2 were multicoloured off cuts from some prefelt that Maureen dyed. I cut the handle and flap out of the top and cut the bottom off so I can make the bottom nice and flat. I will sew in another piece of matching felt.
And here it is drying. I think it will make a great spindle bag.
Next time I will have more pictures of what we made, but for now its late on Thursday night and it has been a long day with driving home so I am off to bed.
