Stamped bag

I finished this bag recently but have been holding on to it to use as a sample for a small workshop I am running in a local library. Basically it is stamped and then coloured with a fabric paint wash. I have backed and lined it with silk dupion which has such lovely jewel like colours.

The stitch is called Crown Stitch, I haven't used it before. There is quite a bit of free machining,some with a thicker thread used by placing the reel in a jam jar to the side of the machine. As you see I added a tassel.

Happy Easter

This is a small bowl, 4 1/2 inches, that I made this week from merino tops. The band round the outside is made from Suffolk/Jacob cross fleece which I washed myself. It was felted in rather than being added later. Inside I have added whisps of flax. I am pleased with it; the best bit is how light it feels.
