Pieced Nuno Pre-Felt Purses- Part 6

               
               Wrapping the overlapping wool from side one up and around the resist...



                                        ...except at the flanged bottom of the bag...

                                     ...where it must first be opened out carefully...

                                                       ...and then wrapped.


                      
           Painter's plastic is employed between the flange and the body of the bag...

                                            ...to keep them from felting together.



                                      Covering the bottom of the purse with wool...



                                   ...and returning the bag to its 'neutral' position...
     

                                   ...before covering the rest of the pre-felt in fiber.



                                    Next time: I change colors...and add a pocket!

It's so fascinating to see the layering and ordering of the stages that go into these more complex pieces...

Rachel--This one was a bit complicated! :)
