Crafty By Nature Entry by Janet Metzgercomments (4) March 24th, 2009 in gallery
To my eyes this bag has a very autumn folkart look to it. I rescued an old wool sweater from Goodwill and felted (fulled) it. I then cut it up to construct the bag body. The front and back were needle felted in a curly design reusing yarn from an old sweater. The applique leaf and crow were salvaged from a discarded pillow also from Goodwill. The lining is a remnant fabric sample piece from a local design house. I hope you agree this bag has a very earthy feel to it.
