Monsterous Bags

Thank you for all your lovely comments, I'll be picking the winner sometime tomorrow. As promised here is a post that doesn't involve pictures of flower brooches. I have been working on a few bags this week. The grey monster is a commissioned piece, and I have to say it's one of my favourites, I just love her big, adorable eyes and cute nose. She is made from Gotland and Merino. The girlie pink monster (Shirley) has gone into the etsy shop, look at her sweet wensleydale locks of hair, I'd love curls like that. The last one has been embellished with a flower which is a slightly different design from my brooches ( I have been spending some time trying out different flower shapes). The flower bag has also been listed in my etsy shop. The pink and lilac bag have both been hand dyed with natural dyes, lac for pink and logwood for purple. I bought all my dyes from DT crafts, they come in a powdered form so they're really easy to use. However, I do have plans create a little dyers garden and am starting to research which plant to get.
