Pieced Nuno Pre-Felt Purses- Part 7

Adding wool from a yellow batt...

...to the project surface.


                                                   Forming an interior pocket...

                                            ...from leftover bits of nuno pre-felt...



                                                  ...and additional yellow wool.



             The hanging loops are made more 'of a piece' with the rest of the bag...

                                ...by the addition of narrow windings of dark roving.



                                                     Mid-way through felting...



                               ...the project begins to shrink and to become firmer.



                              Removing the resist and turning the bag right-side out.



                                                       As the felting continues...



                                    ...the purse is placed in different orientations...



                                                         ...for even shrinkage.



                                            As the rubbing and rolling continue...  



                                         ...the once garish nuno pre-felt stripes...



                                             ...become more and more muted...



                                                              ...and subtle.



                                                 As the bag nears completion...

                       ...the flanged bottom is revealed to be a bit of a 'problem child'.



                                              Next time: 'mischief managed'! ;)

Yes, the colours do blend and mute beautifully, don't they!

This process is fascinating! Thank you for sharing. I've tried commenting before, but with no luck. Maybe this time?!
