I got my Pumpkin salad bag finished Sunday complete with cotton burgundy and small black check cotton lining with added pockets. It measures 19 x 22 and is designed to carry large projects. It's going in the SC State Fair.
Out of the rest of salad fabric I got 2 more bags I have to put linings in.
Canteen bag 12" round
Medium size tote bag 14 x 16
Other felting projects--
Spiral Gray rug 36 x 36 done in all natural colors Karakul fleece
Glow sheep bag in pre sewing progress
A blues and purples piece I haven't figure out what it's going to be yet
And today I finally got the outer border finished on dino rug and will be spending tomorrow whip stitching the edges and giving it's final finishing--yeah. It's going in the SC State Fair. I decided on it because it's all original rather than Walk Me which has some problems on it's braided border which didn't come out as well as I hoped it would as my braiding still has a ways to go and WM is based on one of my cross stitch patterns. I was also afraid that WM would freak the fair people out because it's a fantasy dragon and this is the Bible Belt South--dragons don't go over very well here with mainstream SC folk. I figure WM will do better with me at the Heritage Festival since it is in front of the SC State Museum and gets more art lover and open minded people coming to the festival. I have lots of run in with locals with my paintings over the years so I tend to air on the side of caution when presenting any of my fantasy art work locally.
New hooker - I have just started to hook, finished 2sm.pieces. Would like to do a bigger piece,any ideas on a good size for a rug! Would love ideas.
