…Turning lemons into lemonade…. I disliked a 1st dyed fiber experiment, so I over-dyed it and absolutely love the resulting muted, mixed colors. This piece of wool fell short of standard 4 oz bundle of spinning fiber, so arose the question of how to maximize use of it? Answer: felt it into little bags to best display the interesting color palette.
Beading is a lovely added detail. I am so pleased with these bags, I can hardly wait til after the show when I’ll have time to play at making more.
Below: More embellished bags, some with needle-felted sheep images.
Next: a new shape. this wee rectangular Locks ‘o wool bag is still intended to hang from a spinning wheel peg (such as on a Lendrum) but is flatter and a bit more generous in size.
