Wet Felted Alpaca Needle Case

It's finally finished !

A long long time ago ...
I started making this needlecase.
It's made from Alpaca fibre - so fine and soft.

This one's for Mum.

Wet Felt Journal Cover

Embellish Journal Cover

... the work in progress of a night garden

The inside cover today ...

A selection of VIVIDLY coloured torn silk strips are woven
to create a door panel for the cover of the journal

and a 'mosaic pot' for the growing plant to call home
There are more flowers leaves and fruit yet to cover the vine ...
and this silk weaving
rich with colour, silver and gold,
will become a wonderfully bright panel
 for a handle which will open the book!
