Pink Clutch Purse Giveaway

 

 

 

 


I decided to try another clutch purse...

...this time using variegated pink and white merino roving instead of batts.

I used the resist that I made for the yellow clutch...

...and made the same kind of tube closure.

I placed two thin layers of wool on the resist...

...and splayed out the dry end of the tube closure for attachment to the top layer.

I used a felting 'stone' (pottery, actually)...

...to felt around the base of the closure, helping to make it secure.

To the surface of the bag's exterior, I added white flax strands...

...and to the flap, colorful sari silk fibers.

On Wednesday, I will show you the finished bag...

...and at that time, you can leave a comment if you would like to enter a drawing to receive this purse as a gift.

I will use www.random.org to choose a winner on Friday.

See you on Wednesday!

Love those little colored bits in the bottom photo! And is your stone textured on the bottom side? I can see where something like that might be helpful.

Kelly: I know! I found this and two other 'cream + color' rovings at the Maryland S&W this year. Yum!
Deb: Yes-the bottom of the 'stone' is textured. I found it here: http://www.mielkesfarm.com/felt_tools.htm
Kim: Hahahah...so you noticed Heidi's closures, too. I LOVE them!!

Very pretty, and totally unique as well. Both the yellow and the pink. I want to add that your tutorials were nice as well. You did a great job of blending that blue and green. It looks great. :)
