When I had this friend over who felted the red bag
I didn't do much else than a bit of knitting
(and making coffee, tea and lunch)
I don't have enough space
for "more than one bag at the time"
That's okay, but I always start felting myself
right after such a day.
I planned this new bag
to fit especially to a jacket that I made for myself
out of silk / linen five years ago
(remember for wich occasion ;-) !)
I will make a picture of it later, with the bag ...
Sunny colours : golden yellow, pink and a bit magenta
The Ginkgo leaves are no coincidence !
I used the same template as the one for my orange bag
(last year) and the friend's red bag
There's the Ginkgo (a bit of pre-felt)
and I used some netting in order to prevent that the design might shift
It really took a long time and repeated corrections
before the spirals stayed in place.
(the spiral is a bit more pink than here on the photo)
Now I must wait till it's completely dry so I can fix the strap
and a little magnet as a closure.
gorgeous. love purple and yellow contrast.BeantwoordenVerwijderen

Gingko leaves are so lovely, and yours express their elegance and serenity perfectly....the extra effort to get the spiral set as you wanted was worth it...very beautiful!
What a beautiful little treasure....and the spiral is FAB.BeantwoordenVerwijderen
You are wise to follow a *making* day with your own day of inspiration ;>]]
