So for my bag, I took most of my time deciding on color, texture and embellishments - not process. I paid for this in the end because the Noro at the top of the bag refused to felt while the Cascade in the body of the bag rapidly felted, ugh.
I ended up making a major design adjustment. I turned the partially felted top into a gathered element and I put a tassled and embellished drawstring woven into it. The body of the bag is nice and firm and stands up on its own. What do you think?
My reading list book swap
Over on swap-bot.com I joined a neat swap where you send to two partners a list of your top ten books! It's an international swap so I got a great list from someone in the states and someone from Portugal. I played around with some paper crafts and made my list out of pictures. I included a typed list tucked into an envelope pocket that I made in the back. See any books you've read?
