Description

A richly embroidered, small, pouch-shaped bag, of recycled, felted, tweed fabric - pictured holding my phone, car keys, wallet and packet of pocket tissues with a little more room to spare.

Fabric, cut from a tweed skirt, was fulled (felted) by a hot wash machine cycle. Natural un-dyed, mohair fibres were needle-felted onto the front panel of the bag to form the background of roses. Hand-dyed wool and silk fibres have been used to felt other flower shapes. Natural, un-dyed, alpaca fibres, (provided by an alpaca named Jodie) have been used to felt the background shape of some cocoa coloured flowers. All the felted flowers have been completed by hand embroidery in cotton and wool. The background of the design has been heavily embroidered with many other flowers and leaves in autumn shades.

The bag closes with a stitched cotton loop over an unused vintage button. The strap is a length of hand-made cord from a randomly coloured yarn in coordinating autumn shades, twisted with brown crochet cotton - added in order that the cord will not have a tendency to stretch in use.

Inspiration

Some lovely tweed fabric from a recycled skirt, some needle felting templates which I wanted to try and some lovely vintage threads and tapestry wools inspired this design.
