Coin Pouch - in Wool
Still playing with commercial wool felt and surface design. Came up with this sweet coin purse or lipstick case or whatever small treasure one might store in it. Because most available felt is fairly thin have taken to using two layers fused together to provide a more sturdy fabric. It is fun working small. The bird design is multi-layered, multi-technique - blue felt needle punched into one layer of periwinkle felt then free-motion stitched detail with varigated rayon thread; the wing is a bit of surface design fabric and is slightly raised, providing nice texture. Vintage button closure matches the blue in the bird. Yep, like this one! What do you think?
