Whenever I teach a workshop I make an item as a way of demonstrating technique. Often, I don’t finish them on the day as I’m busy assisting people, so I recently decided to have a finishing day and thought you’d like to see the results.
As you can see I liked the simple design of this bag so much I repeated it. Rather than a flap I created two rolls to become the fastening. They might be quite interesting beaded as well.
The slippers below are made of Norwegian and hand dyed Swaledale fibres. It’s quite a hairy mix but it works very well for slippers as both fibres are so hard wearing. I enjoyed stitching into them even though they are a slightly difficult shape for that.
I’ve been working on items for my Bringing the Outdoors In workshop which I hope to show you soon.
