This is what I've been working on over the last few days, though I think 'playing' would be a more appropriate word. I apaologise for such a huge posting!
I made a couple of squares of pre-felt, a smoky purple and a black, then decide to laminate them with a piece of pink cotton scrim to give strenght and stability. What next??? I found my very first piece of nuno felt - made a few years ago with a piece of upcycled silk scarf.
Fabulous Judith! It doesn't look like an evolved bag - it looks like a top class design. Super colours too.
A magnetic snap closure would be easy to fit before you line the bag - a small piece of calico stitched, like a patch, over the 'rough' part of the closure on the inside of the bag protects the lining. The closure can be hidden on the front of the bag with a button or small felt embellishment.
