What's New

My Bubble Wrap delivery!

Finished bag...cute outer pocket.

New bag

Check the shrinkage!

Prior to felting...

Not sure why my days have been so short. I could have used that extra hour every day (and then some). I shipped out lots of work to the guild shop and have made another "Urban Monster" (Yoga Monster) I will post images of her on the next post. I did make the above bag over the last couple of days and was playing with a different design to shake things up and keep life interesting, because, you know, life is never interesting (yes, sarcasim). I really like it. It is very wearable and functional with pockets in and out. It is c-1/Pelsull and the top layer is corriedale. I am oddly attached to this one, perhaps it will remain mine or it will be gifted to someone special.
I am getting materials and equipment ready for my artist in residency and received my roll of bubble wrap today! Glad it is not raining!

That bag is wonderful Andera! The outside pocket flap ... is that a piece of wonderful silk under the wool? (or how did you get that intricate design?) There's nothing about this bag I don't love .. the top shape is so functional and cool. Well done ... true perfection.

Hi Andrea,
Only just discovered your site and so glad that I did, I must say that you are an extremely talented feltmaker; of real distinction. Love all your work but that bag is just sooooo wonderful and yes how did you create that wonderful design on the front? I shall come back again for sure. Regards Tricia

Good morning Andrea,

Yes, I believe I would keep this bag, too...I love it!

Is the bubblewrap that is pictured the 4' wide type? I don't know what you paid for it, but I found a great site for the wider wrap at what I thought was a really good price. Let me know if you're ever interested (though it looks like that should last for awhile:-)

Have a great day!

Thanks all! The bag design is very functional. I took it to a meeting last night. The flap is a woven silk over the wool. I have lots to do today, but will make a couple others with this design. The rope handles weren't too bad to make because they are short! I left the resist open where I attached/felted them in...and yes, Youare not done until you get that kind of shrinkage!
