With the weather so beautiful outside, I have had a hard time finding the time to felt. I finally found some time the other night and worked on these purses…
I can only take credit for the needle felted design on the front, the purse itself is 100% wool and wet felted. The quality is very high and I have been carrying mine around for months now and the strap hasn’t stretched at all. Stretching is a common problem in felted items that aren’t felted enough.
While I was going through some pictures, I realized that I hadn’t shared the other tote bags I have made…
This is one of my favorites 🙂
Some of these are in my Etsy store and the others will be going to the Black Sheep Gathering with me in a week.
Have a great day!
Just beautiful! Inspirational too. I am making purses from my handspun and handwoven jacob wool, and think I might incorporate s bit of needlefelting in them. I love seeing pictures of your finished work Shannon.
Very nice Shannon! I love the first one — the one with the teal leaves is nice and so is the purple flower… well, they’re all great, those are just the ones that caught my eye. The chicken is really outstanding too, especially for a chicken lover. 😉
Are you taking animals to BSG, or just vending? Can’t wait to see you there!
They are really beautiful! Do you wet felt the bags, too?
Thanks!!! Emily – We will be vending and showing sheep at BSG. What day(s) are you coming? I will be on the lookout for you. Nope, I can’t take credit for the wet felted part, just the needle felting on the front 😉
I don’t know what day(s) I’ll be there, but I’m there at least a day, every year 🙂 I’m not too far from the fairgrounds, so generally plan last min when we’re going!
They are all beautiful–have fun at the sheep gathering!
