I’ve just got back from attending two “play days” with the IFA Region 8 ladies at Arnesby Village Hall. There were mini workshops happening on both days and, having seen the lovely felted brooch that Sandra Jenkins was making, I decided to join in with that one.
These pretty little brooches are a great way of using up your left over tiny scraps of fabric and felt from previous projects.
On day two I began laying out Bergschaf and Merino wool to make a fish. I didn’t make very good progress, mainly due to spending a lot of time chatting, looking at other people’s work and perusing copies of “Felt Matters” magazines. I’m continuing with it at home but it’s taken on a new life and will be a sort of fantasy sea creature……..watch this space!
Speaking of fantasy creatures, these felted Monster Bags were made by Sylvia Winn, aren’t they great?
I get the impression that Sylvia is a big fan of novelty bags……this is the “fishy” bag she was working on yesterday, complete with zip closure and fishing line shoulder strap!
