'Bejeweled' Pre-Felt Scrap Sample Tote

Placing leftover pre-felt scraps onto the surface of my resist...


                                  ...then covering them with variegated wool roving.


                           After adding a 'pierced' pre-felt square on the second side...

                    ...the whole shebang is covered with additional layers of wool roving.


                                                 Mid-way through felting...


                                            ...the project is turned right-side out.


                                     When the tote has been blocked and dried...

                   ...beads and bits of broken jewelry are added for embellishment.


                                          Side two with its assertive, pre-felt design.


                                          A close-up of the sewn-on additions.


                                                       It's fun to see, isn't it...


                        ...what a forlorn handful of pre-felt scraps might become!?! :)

Fantastic!! You really turned that into a work of art. It's gorgeous! I love the bits of sparkle and beads. They really add something special to it. :)
