Hi there!

I tried my first wet felt as a random square to see what would happen - I didn't want to try any real project before I knew what I'd end up with. Then I wanted to see what I could do with my random square so I folded it up into a bag shape and got me sewing kit out!

A little self-deprecation: I know it isn't great but its my first attempt  Undecided so I will get better with practice - its not terribly firm but the more I use it the firmer it gets?

I was looking for something to do with a load of old costume jewellery so I attached a load of bits and know I jangle, lol! I like the fact tht the big button is an old nipple ring  Wink

I died the middle with kool aid and the pale pink with food dye.

The link is:



I hope this works, I'm a bit of a technophobe!
Whaddya think? Cheers xx

If you want it to be firmer, throw it in the wash.  you'll want to take off the bangles... and it may shrink a bit, but that should felt it further.. maybe put something in between the layers so they don't felt together?  Thats about all I can recomend, being a novice felter myself...
But I love your bag!  its wonderful!
