Today I found a few treasures at the Sally Anne. It's been awhile since I've found any, so this is super nice.
I love crewel work. Changing the direction of the thread makes a difference in texture and detail.
And a smaller squirrel one.
These works need to be cleaned up. Anyone have any tips? I don't know if the dyes in the wool will bleed and I don't want to find out the hard way. A lot of time when into these treasures.
I also found this fabric! A gem yes?! It's almost a duck fabric, so a little thicker.
Most perfect for making another market bag like this one! And this one in merimekko!
Love making these bags for now and hope to have a little collection to sell at the market!
Oh, look for me on face book. I have a new page. By Hook and Thread.
I'll put the link up when I figure it out!
