It was nice and tidy once I'd put everything away though (and picked up a load of fabric threads!) so I had a good look through my box of felt pieces to make things with. I had quite a large piece I’d made with black merino and strips of coloured cotton gauze (sometimes called cotton scrim). The back was blues and greens with silk embellishments. I thought it’d make a nice purse or wallet, with two sections. I’ve almost finished it, I just need to add the button and button hole.
I almost used the blue side on the outside, but I'm glad I didn't
Trying out a button:
I cut out some pieces to make another one, and this is almost finished now as well.
I also had time to make this notebook cover from a nuno felted piece I made a while ago:
The silk piece had an unusual pattern, and it made a really nice texture when it was felted.
I'm running out of cotton threads now though, so I might have to have a look at the Rainbow Girl's shop for some more gorgeous hand dyed ones. She sells lots of gorgeous threads and fabric and fibres for felting, including dyed cotton scrim.
