Felting again

Sorry folks, I've been absent for a rather long time, even my Mum has commented that there has been no recent blog posts. I have come to the conclusion that blogging whilst the children are off school is just a no go, as soon as I'm on the computer my son climbs onto my lap and starts nagging for the Cbeebies website.

Anyway, hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year. Our New Years plans were scuppered by illness, but I don't think we were alone there, lots of nasty bugs around at the moment.

Well the kids went back to school on Monday and my son is now full time, which means I get to do a lot more felting :) , I was going to post on Monday, but realised I had nothing to show, so I got to work felting instead....

here's a handbag I made for my City & Guilds course, the idea was to manipulate felt to create texture. I have an on going theme of forests and fairy tales so I tried to create a bag that looked like it had been made from wood. I think I'll make it into a little pouch that hangs from your belt. I can imagine a forest fairy wearing one to keep her fairy dust in!
