Extra Large 'Reptile Skin' Purse- Part 2 of ?

After adding red wool to the purse bottom...


                                                          ...I cover side one...



                                            ...with a layer of variegated roving...



                                         ...then repeat the process on side two...



                                                           ...and wet it out.



                                               Adding a grid of painter's tape...



                                      ...and covering it with a layer of brown wool...



                                   ...leaving the tape tips exposed for later removal.



                                                   Mid-way through felting.



                                             Next time: the tape is removed.

What a complex procedure - I'm very intrigued to see how it turns out!

Deborah--This is actually the 'prototype' for the bag that you saw! I started out really, really big with this one, and then amended it to the size that I carried through Europe. I'll be blogging that one before long...but not in a row with this one, since they are so alike, it would be way too boring! XX
