My students wanted to make wool felt bag with flap and sturdy handle. They asked if they can learn. I love my students who challenge or drive my creativity. I said surely they can make it. Before the workshop taking place I made the sample. The bag mainly to show the nuno felt textures and more feminine of purple.
Instead of the usual leaves printed silk fabric I used, I made use of the logwood dyed scraps to put on the flap, with little mulberry silk also dyed in the same pot to decorate the flap surface.
This silk scarf was dyed in Canada while Sharon G. and I first tried logwood dye. The shades of purple are pretty.
A glimpse of how I made it..... Laid the white and purple wool with enclosed resist, made the sturdy round handle, some silk strips on surface decoration....... Rubbing and "rock n roll" a lot.........
Here came the set of handbag - double flaps, inner pocket and magnet button. A set of handbag with scarf.
My friends know me well my fav lavender, so I'd call this lavender series.
Isn't it go well with the nuno felt dress? That's the textures I love to play.
