I recently worked with three wonderful students sharing how to make cobweb felt and transforming it into framed bags.
Stitching the felt and fabric
We worked over two days, initally laying out the wool and making it into cobweb felt. The group then learnt how to measure, draw up and create their chosen bag patterns.
Securing the glued in bag frames
On the second day, once the felt had been washed and dried, we backed the felt by stitching it with velvet. The felt fabric and gorgeous linings were cut and then stitched to make up the bags. Once the bodies of the bags were sewn they were glued in to their metal frames.
These are the wonderful finished bags made by Janet, Pam and Jane. If you would like to take part in a bag making workshop or an alternative feltmaking course please contact me on 07753366795 or email via firstname.lastname@example.org
I am very excited to announce that Silversoles will be exhibiting at the wonderful MADE London Design and Craft Fairon the design Gap stand. You can find us on Stand C2 in the Crypt Pods from Friday 24th to Sunday 26th October 2014.
