Okay, I am done playing in the park for a while and have been finishing up projects. As promised, I am posting a new freeform bag using a Tilli Tomas silk liner. I love these things as once you are done with the fancies there is no lining to make. Very nice.
Also, I am just about finished with my wet felted hat, just a bit more whip stitching on the brim area. It is pretty good for my first attempt at this. No one told me that this was an ambitious project for a beginner. But, I guess that is the story of my life. I just jump into the deep end of the pool and dog-paddle like crazy! Wet felting is a fascinating process just for the technique itself and I can see why people get absorbed with this for the rest of their lives. It is incredible what can be accomplished when you consider all the variables. I must continue with my experiments. Yikes, I sound like a bit of a mad scientist! Anyway, hope you like these. There are more items coming along. Be sure to get plenty of fiber in your life. It is a lot of fun!
