'After Mondrian' Wine Totes- Part 2 of ?

Filling in the design with more pencil roving and pre-felt pieces...


...and mid-way through felting.


                                                                Cutting slits for handles.


                                                              The finished tote (back side).
                                                   
                                   (See how the black fibers migrated through the front of the bag...

                                                                      ...to the inside?!)

                                         

                                                I like the unexpected little stripes on the tote handle!
           
                                          

                                                              The wine bottle carrier in use...

                                               

                                                                 ...and the flattened tote...

      

                                                                             A close-up!

      

                                                          Next time: a green version is begun! :)

This is such a practical idea, while giving you flat, broad surfaces to experiment with!

Rachel--I'd like it even better if I could work inside-out, but that's impossible with this resist.

Another great tote, and very cute too. LOL
