This time the bags I've been busy felting 
don't look like the bags 
I'm usually making
I wanted them to be a bit more simple to felt
and possibly combine them with fabric.

(as long as cat-assistant leaves my wool in peace
she's allowed ón the table)
The pattern is just a long strip : 
front - back - flap
The rest is still a bit of a mystery (to me) 

Using a piece of net, to prevent the "nuno" parts from shifting
(though my hands don't like rubbing on the stiff net)

This one's dry now and waiting for the fabric gussets.

The next one in a different colour scheme

just four layers : two for the inside (light pink)
and two for the outside (reds oranges and pinks)

This one's still wet and not all the nuno pieces are well attached :
the silk and cotton were okay, the mix fabric (big dots) not quite.

And my other assistant ?

doing some vacuuming for me,
(with my felting "swimm noodle")

  1. Gosh what beautiful colors, Els! And you are so lucky to have two such helpful assistants!
    I hope you will show the finished bags - I love the idea of combining other fabrics with the felting.
    xxxoo, sus
