Felted Bag With Gipsy Style



That's how it can look like if I stitch until my fingers get sore...

But I don't like using thimbles.


The length of the strap is adjustable.









It's a 2 in 1 bag.









In Germany some said that the free stitching looks so hungarian. I told them they are gipsy motifs. And gipsy culture is not hungarian culture!

Gipsies have their own tradition in Hungary and every other lands they live in the world. They even say that they are gipsies living in Hungary and not hungarian.


In Hungary there are many different kinds of free embroidery. One very famous is the style of the city Kalocsa (say Kalotsha). That kind of free stitching has colors like the gipsy's hand craft but the floral design is absolutely different. (On the photo you see a traditional costume from Kalocsa.)
