I just finished this wool purse made with felted sweaters! I created the design on it as I went along, by needle felting with wool. It started with a blue flower (butterfly-inspired) and then came the unfurling, swirling vines. I wrote the story of it’s creation here.
It’s amazing what you can do with some felted wool sweaters, leftover wool yarn, a pair of scissors, a sewing needle, a felting needle and bits of wooly color. I looked forward to Bracken’s nap time each day, so I could work on it some more.
It made me inspired to write a post about needle felting with wool.
Those of you have never needle felted, would you like to learn?
