A step forward 終於做到似似地

I've been trying to do wool felt picture a prettier look but have no idea.
Renata Felt of Lithuania is an expert. I wish to learn from her but schedule doesn't suit. She has the Etsy PDF tutorial.for a wool felt bag making with poppies painting skills. I ordered from her the file last Friday.
我好想做羊毛氈的花畫生動鮮明些, 但總是做不來, 很想跟一位大師Renata Felt 學藝, 但時間未許, 她的手袋花畫簡直是水彩畫一般細緻漂亮, 最近她在Etsy tutorial .pdf 教做一個罌粟花畫的手袋技巧, USD 31.5 = HK$250 ,不便宜啊, 一個file 祗教一個手袋的做法, 心想HK$250一本書都買到啦 ! 猶豫了好幾天, 我還是買了這個祗有幾頁的 file, 因為我再找不到有其他門路參考, 再者, 我們政府退稅喎, 我這個月又會收到服務了 "N"年的獎金, 正好要 pamper 啦, 買自己鍾意的最好不過. 今日就去工作室做實習, 哎喲, 忘記帶印好的file 依指示做, 唯有靠閱讀幾次後在腦海的記憶做吧, 還好, 花畫及手袋handle做法學到技巧 , 須不大完美, 已有進步, 仍要努力改進.
Tutorial suggested to do the bag in day 1 and other for the poppies painting. I was so anxious to try and went to my studio yesterday but forgot to bring the instruction printout. Just made a mini size from my reading memory. The instruction is clear to follow and I got the skills to make the tough handle and poppies. I did one side with poppies, the back side of the word "Mooi" - means "pretty" in Dutch. (Just wish it's pretty" !)
I used to do poppies so dull as above pictures. I followed Renata's instruction, now seems I've a step forward. I'm happy to learn how to do the handles - it's fun and tricky.

"Mooi" - when spirit is high, seeing everything is "mooi". This bag is not perfect. I know how to do it better, I will practise more. So delighted, I can make it now.
This small purse will be used for keeping my phone, key and badge when I go for a walk after lunch in office.
I love poppies. Love the crimson, love the petals, love the feel of France........

I like to paint poppies.
Even I can't do well ceramic painting, I find it easy to illustrate with a few dots.

After the whole morning I finally made the bag. Time out.
Ya, this is my cup of tea.......


  1. Beautiful purse Terrie! You are so talented!

  2. It's beautiful! Reminds me of paintings by Monet. :)

  3. The little bag is precious, cute and cuddly! I would take it to bed and hug it while I sleep. And the poppies are my favorite flowers ever :))

  4. Terri as talented as you are with your crafting in felt I am sure that you will master those sweet little purses in no time. How lovely they are and I am sure you will be making yours just as beautiful. I have never tried felting but I am no stranger to it. Once I had a wool sweater and I washed it in hot water by mistake, ha ha ha , it became very fuzzy and a lot smaller than what it was at the start. That my friend was my only experience with felting, lol
