a life of fibre

Shetland wool handbag

Next month, on Wednesday 22nd March, I’m running a British Wool Handbag workshop and this is one of the examples I’ll be taking along to inspire people.

I’ve used 4 natural shades of Shetland: white, light grey, moorit and dark brown. Inside the bag is white and there’s one interior pocket.

The handle has the same 4 shades of wool and is attached by means of decorative french knots and finished in a curl.

For a closure I needle felted and then wet felted a ball from the light grey and white Shetland.

This particular style of bag is one of my favourites and if you’d like to book a place on the workshop you can find more details here.
