Hello my lovelies, I'm playing catch up with my posts again. I'm having trouble keeping up with life at the moment. It's travelling way too fast for me!
This piece of felt (shown here at the start of the felting process) was a commission for the lovely Alison. She requested a small bag with a flap and a long strap to go across the body. And the theme was violets, pansies and anemones.
So that's what I made her!
I have to admit I was stumped for a long time.
Inspiration eventually came while out in the car one weekend. We passed a couple hill walking (not unusual here in the Dales) and the lady was wearing a purple fleece and the gent was wearing bright blue trousers and there swinging back and forth between the two of them was a bright green plastic carrier bag (probably had their butties in it.) Any way that was all I needed, PING!
Thank you Alison for being so patient with me and giving me room to wait for the creativity to flow.
I think it was worth it.
Till next time
love Fi x
