Hello Everyone,

A friend told me to post my two projects here to get feedback
Both of these wet felted bags took between 6-10 hours of work. Most of the hard work is felting and fulling to reach the desired sizing. I also crafted and sewed in a satin finish lining with zipper pouch and cellphone/eyeglass pocket

I get my ideas from the lovely areas I visit in my travels around my hometown near Acadia National Park in Maine.
I would like to hear your comments, criticism, etc.

Greetings from Downeast Maine. My name is Sveta, and I live, work, and create my wool designs from my shop near Mount Desert Island. Ever since I was a young girl in Ukraine, I watched my grandma work with fabric and spin wool to make nice things for me, and now I make nice things for others. Smile.

theyre great, the images are very clear and lifelike, esp for using such a light background- the light fibres havent mushed the image tones at all. really well done! godd luck

Gorgeous!  I especially love the one with the red poppy looking flowers on it!  You can tell that you put a lot of time and love into these beauties.  Smiley

Lovely!  The poppies are my favorite.  You have clearly worked hard on your bags.
