Poppy bag workshop

So many poppies made in the last month and not just by me. Take a look at the beautiful poppy bags made on Saturday.

The majority of people had little or no felting experience so it’s a double achievement to have made such splendid pictorial bags.

Carol isn’t a bag person so chose instead to create two pictures onto which she will later stitch.

The poppies just glow don’t they. Mandy was at the workshop and happened to mention she’d been working on a needle felted nativity scene since September, aw, lovely we thought. Once we discovered she actually had it with her we insisted on an impromptu show and tell.

It’s still a work in progress and there are one or two more characters / animals to make an appearance but aren’t they just lovely? And so well felted.  As in the Shrek film, it was the donkey that stole the show.

Thank you Mandy Gordon for sharing these with us.

  1. Gorgeous bags, you are correct, the poppies do just sing! The nativity scene is very sweet with a lot of work going into it and yes that donkey is excellent 🙂
