fall-ish

fall-ish felt bag

Feeling a little fall-ish around here. We are totally in schedule adjustment mode. Eva, AKA Ms. Junior Hand Model, has started team gymnastics this year, and my goodness, they practice a lot! And I do have things to show you, but I just can’t seem to be at home at the same time as the sunshine in order to get good pictures. I managed to get the above taken during our rainy day yesterday. It’s a felted sweater bag with vintage sheet lining, binding and decoration. My sweet sister-in-law gave me the sheet, so this bag is off to her. (Thank you!) I want to make a caftan for the pool (you know, big blue thing that closed a couple weeks ago) or some such with the rest of the sheet. I think that would be fun.

The honeycomb smocking tutorial is almost done–I think you’ll like it. And no, I haven’t been gone so long because it takes all that time and concentration to do honeycomb smocking. That would be ridiculous.

Your beautiful bag has given me some ideas in rescuing a felted bag that I preciously thought wasn’t worth saving. Lovely.
