I can’t believe it has been 3 weeks since the bag workshop with Judit Pocs and the Region 1 (Devon and Cornwall) IFA ladies. Another very successful and brilliantly fun 2 days. Most of the participants (myself) included were a little over-ambitious with what we could achieve in 2 days and barely managed to get our bags to the prefelt stage before we had to pack up and go home. I finally finished my bag nearly a week after the workshop ended but I think it was worth spending nearly 3 days toiling over. The green diamond on the front is a button made from felt that holds the front flap down.
The purple bulge in the strap is a little pouch for your keys.
This is the back side with an extra large pocket.
Last week I attended an incredibly intense, 3 day workshop making a “furry felt” bolero jacket with Heidi Grebb (more on that next time) and this weekend I have been making a snail hat, it is still damp and and the light was fading when I took these photos, but I think you get the idea…
Wow Teri they are fantastic!
Thanks Galina, I had a ball at both of Judit’s classes (as you can probably tell from the output!)
Awesome Teri! The key pocket is genius. I can’t to hear more about your class with Heidi.
Thanks Marilyn, yes Judit has some fabulous ideas, I always come away from her classes buzzing with ideas of how take her suggestions further (the snail hat is an example of that!).
Wonderful stuff Teri! I like the key pocket idea and the whole bag is fantastic – love the colours.
Your snail hat is fun!
Thanks Lyn, Judit has some fabulous ideas for bag designs, I’d like to develop the key pouch idea further on some other bags.
Love Love Love all of it!
Thanks Frances, I had a fantastic time making all of them 🙂
WOWSA WOWSA WOWSA! !!!! That is soooooo fantastic!!!!! Only in my felting dreams could I ever achieve this level of talent … OMG again! !!
Thanks Cath, if you get the chance, definitely take a class with Judit, even the less experienced felters were making fabulous hats and bags under her guidance
These are wonderful Teri! I love both of them but the snail hat is genius 🙂
Thanks Ruth! 🙂
Wow! Both bag and hat are amazing! I can only imagine how much fun and inspiring a workshop with Judit Pocs must be.
Thanks Zara, it really was amazing! I am tempted to say it was the best holiday ever, but thinking about it, the bag workshop was quite hard work too, but totally worth it! 🙂
Wow, the bag is wonderful. I saw Jenny’s last weekend – they’re amazing. I only hope Judit will run another class so that I get chance to have a go.
Thanks Sandy, the bag workshop was hard work but the things we made were incredible, I’m desperate to make another bag but I need to get on with making hats for a couple of festivals over the summer.
Fantastic work Teri! The Key pocket is such a great idea – think all bags should have one!
Thanks Carol, I couldn’t agree more! My keys always seem to find their way into the deepest darkest recesses of my bags 🙂
Teri, this is fantastic. A little bit crazy for me, but very original. Love the colours too.
Thanks Nada, it is definitely a statement piece! 🙂
