Tiny Adorable Felt Messenger Bags!

I was collecting so many of these Not Quite Square pieces of Felt from teaching a INTRO to Feltmaking class at Eugene Textile Center that I realized I needed to MAKE something out of them.  I started folding them in different ways and you know I just love the Triangles in life, so here they Leapt into Life as pointy-pint sized Messenger Bags, each one with a unique twist in the design and finishing.  A button here, part of a Doily there…..maybe a tassel or a row of beads….and the stitching, oh the stitching.  There is something about the way the sewing machine needle pierces the buttery texture of the felt fabric that is oh so yummy and satisfying.  Next on the list is a group of Scottish Highland Plaids, a really easy and Fun way to approach felt color design. Can you tell that I am reading OUTLANDER!  Och Aye……Mmphm.

Lucky me, I have such a TACTILE life!   Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee
