Needle-Felted Bags for Christmas
Now that zippers and I are friends, I wanted to make a few little gifts for Christmas presents.
I used some thrifted and fulled wool pieces from my stash (these began their useful lives as mens' wool trousers!), and needle-felted designs onto them.
Then, I briefly wet-felted them (just enough to get the design affixed more firmly),...
...and sewed them into these little bags.
The Christmas fabric lining is from my stash, and the cool retro striped fabric is from my pile of 'special fabrics waiting for the right project'.
I think they'll be just right for cosmetics, travel or small purse items.
