Yesterday was the bag workshop day where our small, select and very happy group made some fab bags.
An ambitious first handbag by Sue with double handles and double flaps. The shaping of the flaps is a nice touch and the marbling effect is achieved by a combination of carded fibres and recycled sari silk fibres.
This beautiful little tote bag in fun colours is by Belinda. This side has a pattern of spots applied with the use of pre-felts and the reverse has a heart pattern.
Wendy’s bag is so much fun with it’s pattern inspired by starburst flowers. It’s a delicate mix of pinks with a contrasting white interior, double flap and a twisted cord for a fastener. You’d never guess that it’s Wendy’s first piece of felt would you?
An oval shaped bag produced by Judy. It has two internal pockets, double flap and a handle which spilts in two in the centre. I think the poppy picture design is quite delightful too.
Sue worked so hard on this bag. It has two internal pockets and two external pockets plus integral strap and contrasting interior. The photo really doesn’t do it justice.
The workshop was calm, good fun, interesting conversation and with a view of lambs in the field opposite. What more could we ask.
