Bag Layout


Last night I decided to layout a bag for myself using a beautiful batt of C-1 Pelsull from New England Felting Supply. The colour is a fabulous rich brick red. The green is some Shetland, we think, wool that Chris White dyed in a vivid green. It made a wonderful bright sample. I know the red underneath will change it a bit, but it will be nice with the red,
in any case. The bag will be a simple rectangle with rounded bottom corners, pocket inside, and I have a very nice set of black leather handles that I bought recently. I have ordered my materials for the Midwest event and have been working on some planning for that. I have my work ready to go to Colorado and a piece to work on for a juried exhibtion. Won't be long and I am headed for "Lockdown". Accomodations will be rustic, inspiration plentiful...

I am so inspired by your work, Absolutely love it...(speaks to the alien in me). I just learned needle felting 7 months ago and have been making needle felt bags...

I would love to see close ups of your finished bag and was hoping you could describe the texture and feel of it for me . I have never touched wet felted bag and wonder what the difference is from needle felting .

Thanks,
Denise

Wet felt is generally much more compact, dense and durable if done properly. If you are in the market for a good book on wet felting, Uniquely Felt by Christine White is THE book.
