And this is me in my new waistcoat, it was so lovely and warm today it dried in the sun in no time:
Then I had a bit of inspiration for the pouch. I made a couple of little beads from the left over roving, sewed them on as buttons, and added little loops made from the home-spun yarn that I had dyed with the same colours. M is feeling bored and lonely at her dad's house for half term so I thought I would send it to her to cheer her up. I enjoyed making the beads, it was very quick and simple for such a nice effect, so I then proceeded to make some more little beads out of the remaining roving ... maybe a little bracelet is coming next.
I am equally impressed with the the felting as I am with the slideshow. One of these days I will sit down and figure how to use my blogger account properly. Until then, I will just keep reading yours.ReplyDelete
You look fab in the sun, in your lovely waistcoat!
Much Love, J
You must be so proud wearing your handmade waistcoat:) And, that pouch is adorable. You could probably add a strap and turn it into a small handbag.ReplyDelete
P.S. It is impressive, as Julie wrote, that you were able to create that video. I have no idea how and will never try!
