Today I dressed all in my eco print, lots compliments from my friend. I said I like natural dye. "What? You like natural die?" I said "no no, I meant natural dye".
I've done quite a lot experiments of eco print / dye. Some are good some are not. With cool season approaching, wool felt stuff becoming hot. Since last Jan learnt the 3D textural surface, can't stop to make bags to make use of the scraps. This is the one just made.
I like to use my own "not-so-good" dyed scraps just to make use of every single piece. This georgette silk I imprinted the euc leaves but no good then dyed in safflower pot. Still not pleased thus used for the 3D texture of a clutch flap.
After layered around and enclosed the resist and the 3D scraps.....
Final to lay the safflower dyed silk hankie for a bit yellow sheer look.
Time out, let the stuff saturate and have my coffee....... Mogi's final check....
Almost 3.5 hours rubbing, rock n roll........ here it comes.
The rich texture of the flap with little raw fleece is the way I like to do - a little soft against the hard "twist".
Finished with lining, magnet button and detachable strap.
The fold back flap to make an inner pocket is fine and the clutch size is just fit.
Goes well with the natural printed scarf.
A clutch of a detachable handbag is the sample for my upcoming workshop. Also a new item for my winter.
"Mum, it's windy, mind the blow-off.... "
Another 2 pieces of natural print nuno felt scarves are in the making.
Stay tuned, until next time.
