My Favourite Bag
but I love this one!
I wet felted it from natural corriedale and merino fleece and it has leather handles. It's been made in two halves, has been stitched together by hand and lined with cotton. I love it. It's always full of something and goes with me just about everywhere!
What is felting?
"FELT" The Essential Macquarie Dictionary meaning:
"A non woven fabric of wool, fur or hair matted together by pressure"
Fibres can be manipulated with the use of soap, water, friction and heat variations ..........or the use of barbed needles to create many interesting, practical and wearable things.
