My Sling Bag....

28th September 2015

I finished my bag.....

....nobody to take a photo of me wearing it....


....a large handmade ceramic button bought at Yarndale....


.....I wanted a simple fastening that allowed for shopping!!

I found some of my indigo dyed thread, plaited 6 strands, hand couched and it worked!!


>>>>>>>>

My fruit is soaking in brandy ready to make my Christmas cake tomorrow.


>>>>>>>

Made wrapping paper from recycled tissue, scrunched it, painted with metallic silver, printed with turquoise/silver acrylic and like the effect!


>>>>>>>>

I mentioned the work of the artists at Yarndale were inspiring....

.....I made this piece of felt using fleece, silk and angelina fibres ages ago with my embellisher....


......today added silk fabric/fibres (bottom left corner)...


....cut into strips...


....woven strips tacked to hold in place...


.....stitched using metallic thread and wavy programmed stitch....


.....close up....


....all ready for some hand stitching and maybe beads??

Watch this space....
