I’m running a workshop next month making handbags inspired by one of our most recognisable flowers, poppies. Perhaps you’d like to see one of the samples?
I went for a plain purple background. The poppy is redder than it looks, for some reason the photo looks a little pink.
The flower was laid on at the beginning of the felting process. The stitching you can see is purely decorative.
It was so much fun making this small bag. I was a bit worried that the flower was too large for the bag but my daughter convinced me otherwise.
