Gypsy bag

Here is the lovely Gypsy bag!
Thanks for all the comments so far.

It was a bit of an unknown quantity as I was making it up as I went along. I had decided that if it turned out average I would keep it for myself, but if it turned out lovely I would give it away as a Christmas present. I was thinking of someone in particular when I came up with those colours. I'll definitely be saying goodbye to this little beauty! One thing I was particularly pleased about was that I got the density of fabric I wanted, but without too much colour drainage during the felting.

If you would like to find out how I made this bag, then please email me at this address

The bag looks wonderful! The colours are fab and the strap is really unusual.

Bag looks wonderful, Kid Classic felts so well I must give it a try.

Oh it's so lovely Kathleen, the colours are great and I really like the way you wove the handles in and out, that seems to have worked brilliantly.

That is one lovely bag - I too particularly like the way you have made the handles all woven in and out. Today here is Dia de los Muertos, a festival widely celebrated by the Mexican and Spanish speaking population around here. When I first moved here I thought it was all quite macabre, but now I enjoy it as I understand it more. The Mexican bakeries have delicious cinammon bread for sale and along with a cup of champurrado ( mexican hot chocolate) is a lovely treat this time of year. Do you get to teach your students about this festival - or do you concentrate on the European Spanish as such more?
