"Peace Felt" Project- Part 1 of 3

Laying out the front of the bag.

 


The bag back with hand-spun yarn.

 


Adding more variegated roving...

 


...in a circular pattern.

 


Making the inside of the bag flap.

 


Pax = Peace.

I'm participating in the Peace Felt swap this year...

...and now that I've finally mailed my gift off, I can show it to all of you!!

I decided to make one of my 'peanut-shaped resist' bags...

...and pack in as many peaceful images as I could! :)

I worked (as I often do) from the inside-out...

...and used sherbet-colored variegated roving that reminded me of the '70's!

I made two Peace signs with my hand-spun yarn...

...and wrote the word 'Pax' on the inner bag flap.

Next time: more progress photos...

...and one last 'Peace' detail! :)

Neat-O!! (and how 70's is that?)
Really nice, and I love the colors, of course. You always use such brilliant and lovely colors. Can't wait to see the finished bag. It's a winner, no doubt about that. :)

Thanks, Sandie!! Yes...that roving was so reminiscent of the tie dye tees of that time, I couldn't resist!! XXO-
