Needlefelted Clutch Purse
Recycled silk scarf,needlefelted with my embellisher machine,this machine amazes me how it makes a smooth fabric so textured ,dont know whether you can see in this picture, the flower i made with the same scarf,not needlefelted just a running stitch along the edge and drawn together to make a ruffle for the flower then beaded,looks entirely different from the rest other than the colours.
The fabric beaded edging is a necklace i picked up at an antique market,it looks so easy to make these fabric beads.........if you have time lol.
Well this purse has been hanging about in my lace basket for ages,at last its completed ! I get side tracked onto other stuff,like today I had a book i ordered arrive called "Fabric Art Collage" 40+ mixed media techniques by Rebekah Meier.....its soooooo inspiring,i need to study some of these tech's to try.A lovely book if you want to incorporate fabric with paper etc......
I know i keep flitting from one media to another,it will soon be cardmaking time with all the family birthdays coming up,my sons in April,i always like to do something different,heads buzzing with ideas maybe something in metal,cards for men can be a challenge lol.
