23 August: Felt bag

The other item that was felted with the hat/bowl in the previous picture was a bag. This was intended for felting from the start, though.

I decided to finish it on Thursday, to take to the Guild workshop morning. I'd got a zip for it earlier in the week, so I sat down to sew the zip in after breakfast. Brain not properly engaged, so it took 2 attempts to get the zip sewn in properly. Then I found some beads that match the colour really well, and made a pull for the zip.

It's a good size, and the felted fabric is thick and firm. Great colour. Very satisfactory.
