Summer Project Redux
In my summer felting class, several of us stayed late in the studio quite a few nights in order to try things that weren't actually 'part of the curriculum'.
One evening, I took a piece of white pre-felt and needle-felted stripes of various colors of wool roving onto it.
After it was wet felted, I wasn't happy with the couple of places where the pre-felt showed through.
...so it was put into a pile with a lot of other 'false starts' from my class.
But I've been practicing putting zippers in (no mean feat---
these babies used to scare me to death!!)
...and I wanted to do something cute with this colorful felt.
So...I cut it in half and I made a cosmetic bag!
...lining it with fabric that I re-purposed from a thrift store sheet set.
Now...what will I do with the other half??
