Another Finished Embroidered Felt Bag

The Front
The Back

Opened Up - Showing shaping and vintage kimono silk lining
The front again showing more of the handle

This will be my last post until I get back from my jaunt. I really will miss writing and I will miss my computer a lot! I just don't want to risk any rushed stress with the TSA over my computer. I love it too much to be cavalier with it...and the TSA just has too many rules that could cause delays or problems. I hope you will still want to read what I have to report from Festival iin Houston when I start writing again!!

This is another blue/purple themed bag that I just finished. I got two bags from one large piece of the wool felt fabric that I made. I'll be making some in my favored rusts and yellows soon - though I have started a fuchsia and a "wild" one that I'll finish first I guess. I have so many ideas now - and just not enough time . I have discovered that I really like using the vintage kimono silk for the linings - it makes them even more special texturally.

I hope that you have have a wonderful week filled with blessings and delights. "See" you soon.
