One of my all too many artistic passions is creating felted, quilted bags. I make them in all sizes. The bags are first needle felted, then wet felted, then layered with batting, lined with cotton or kimono silk and then they're machine free motion quilted. The handles made using a simple kumihimo braid. I was thrilled when I saw this challenge come up!
I use merino wool, cotton and silk fabrics, 80/20 batting, beads, glitter, angelina, & threadwork.
