Another New Bag

and the pod bag makes 3...


Layout above
The grey is some Gotland I had here from Holland. It is quite course and a bit hairy. The prefelts are some hand-dyed thick merino prefelt and the green and yellow fibre is C-1/Pellsull. I did shave the design on the finished bag to reduce some of the hairyness and the grey dulling my design. I think I will make the next bag from Finnwool. My hands need a bit of a break. No blood so far today as I rubbed a fair bit over the screen with bags on my hands. Maybe the next one will be finn with some merino and fabrics on the surface. I have a simple design for the resist ready to go!

I LOVE your green spot bag - the shapes are beautiful and the colours so 'organic'.

Awesome bags! My new wool is supposed to be here today and I can't wait to get a bag started.

What are you waiting for, Lynn???

Dyed Corridale top from Louet. My stash only has smaller amounts of colors that I purchased from you which I prefer to save for needle felting and smaller embellishments. It just arrived ... a dark blue, warm wine, charcoal, violet and black. It seems to work well for both kinds of felting.

Yes, it will!
