EMBELLISH Autumn Bag...

Last Autumn the lovely people at Artwear Publications in Australia asked if I would design another project for them. This time a felt bag for EMBELLISH magazine with the emphasis very much on the finished decoration.

It was September and here in the UK the leaves had just started to turn, so I 
decided on an autumnal theme, with a falling leaf design in my favourite colours 
ochres, rusty browns and olive greens, with a touch of turquoise.
The magazine was due to be published in March when it would be 
autumn in Australia, so it all seemed to fit…

The bag is made from a piece of flat felt and this can be either 
wet felted or felted using an embellishing machine.

It is a very simple project!

It looks complicated, but the detail is all in the embellishing
 and you can have great fun trying out 
different coloured threads, stitch styles 
and adding beads & buttons.

Find out how to make the bag in the March issue of EMBELLISH

There's all the step-by-step instructions and lots of photos too
and they have even featured a close-up of the 
bag on the front cover...
