OMG what a beautiful bag. I love the colours and the embroidery is so detailed. I've had a couple of attempts at this but don't seem to have the knack. Welldone you.

Its beautiful Fi, such a lovey combination of colours and skill, the embroidery really compliments the felt. hope you get some more sales, its a great feeling when someone wants to buy what you've created. Love that.

You are an inspiration! But how can you bear to let such an incredibly beautiful item go after so much hard work? I guess much of the joy comes in the creation process. Cherrie

I love the bag, such pretty colours. I've never tried felting and couldn't produce anything as nice as that even if I did. You are very talented.

Wow more beauties. Have googled felt making workshops but their felts don't look like yours. Where did you learn to do it or are you self taught?

Thanks for the info - I looked on her website - lovely - will have a run up later in the year. I love you picture on the theblog 'embroidered felt' will have a look for a book - though I prefer to be shown live how to do something. Today we have been stripping and sanding the back room ready to hang 'Percy' (Laura Ashley paper!) on the walls and then add a 30's fire surround given to me by my brother. Really excited but wont get it done this weekend.
