Blimey two posts today......

Iv just had the time to finish off my last pieces of felt........

Them all together..........

More Purses......

These are my latest....... and some inspirations along the way. Jackie's tulips from Dog daisy chains inspired me for embroidery on the variegated coloured purse. I used Studiofelters variegated bright wool and the blue variegated wool from Sara's Texture Crafts. Handmade buttons by me of cause!

I love how this wool has felted. To make it hard wearing I felted it and then did a short wash in the machine........ its given it a wonderful texture. I couldn't tuck the edges in as it would of spoilt it.

Iv been experimenting

Iv been needing to think about making other things to sell through the Spring and Summer time. As you may guess scarfs arent the biggest sellers through those periods of time!
Iv made these Rustic Purses as my first experiment............

What do you think??

Felted Flower Brooches

Iv been concentrating to much on my fairy dress, so I thought I would have a felting moment! One of the brown brooches was a order. I tried a new option for a centre and tried a silk cocoon centre with beading.......... I quite like it!
