Mindy's purse

I took the patches that I felted yesterday on my new toy, & felted them together into a purse for my friend Mindy. They came over to play today while the hubbies watched the Super Bowl. Sorry that Chicgo didn't win. John & Mindy are originally from that neck of the woods.
This heart ended up as a little pocket inside the purse.

The modified log cabin block got cut & placed under the flap.
Another heart ended up on one side.
The front ended up with some fun swirls, & I added some quilting with black Holoshimmer thread. The button is a fused glass button, that I bought from our last Alaska Fiber Festival.
Flowers on the other side panel.
The back ended up with the star, & a strip off of the log cabin.
This heart, I tried some wool on to some of my hand painted silk chiffon. I think this fits with the needle felting ring challenge.

Bee, I'd like to see the back of the silk!
Have you considered doing online classes? If you can instruct thread painting over the phone I'll bet an online class would work!! Love you!

The bag turned out great. What did you use for the base, felt or something else?

You and Jan are doing some fun stuff. Felting, so far, is one of those some day things for me.
