About Our "Roses"...

"I thought that I was rich, with a flower that was unique in all the world; and all I had was a common rose. ...


"It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important."

/Antoine de Saint-Exupéry: The Little Prince/

to let loose...in felt

The most of us are gripping something...such as it would be life-sustaining holding fast to it/her/him...

And what can we cling to?

Such as...

- cream cakes

- soap operas

- parents

- children

- the wish for a child

- spouse

- pets

- revenge

- wine, beer and grog

- amphetamine cocktails

- body shaping

- hope

- past and future

- memories....

The wish of letting loose has to grow inside.

It might make place for a new age...

Mrs. Snowmonster's Pouch

Mrs. Snowmonster will go to theater and is looking for the suitable accessoires.

Some gold will fit and proper to her white fur.

The hair will be left sexy messy. Also her leghair.

Because of the zipper no ice crystals will fall into the bag.

Mr. Snowmonster will love her.

Felt Bag "Indian Summer"

It ended.The indian summer. Fortunately I could gather it's colors on the last day in a glass.

Then I felted this bag white and I spilled the colors over the white bag.

It took a night for the colors to get into the fibers. (I saw it. I was sitting there the whole time by the light of a flickering autumn ladybug.)

This dying method is described in the book "How to Dye Wool With Seasons and Moods".
Don't start searching for it. It's not on the market now.

You get a fall poem instead:

Leaves by Elsie N. Brady

How silently they tumble down
And come to rest upon the ground
To lay a carpet, rich and rare,
Beneath the trees without a care,
Content to sleep, their work well done,
Colors gleaming in the sun.

At other times, they wildly fly
Until they nearly reach the sky.
Twisting, turning through the air
Till all the trees stand stark and bare.
Exhausted, drop to earth below
To wait, like children, for the snow.

Lichen bag - felted

Lichens sometimes are composite organisms consisting of a symbiotic organism composed of a fungus (the mycobiont) with a photosynthetic partner (the photobiont or phycobiont), usually either a green or blue alga. The morphology, physiology and biochemistry of lichens are very different from those of the isolated fungus and alga in culture. Lichens occur in some of the most extreme environments on Earth—arctic tundra, hot deserts, rocky coasts, and toxic slag heaps.


I felted on everything, there is nothing sewn.

In the inside I felted two smaller pockets.

On the front side there are different textiles included: green organza which shines wonderful, gaze, unraveld pullover.

Small Felt Bag Matching a Cocktail Dress

In that case it is not the Little Black Dress but the Little Black Bag for the not really LBD.

To make it even practical I felted in two pockets colored like the dress.

What I couldn't catch on the photos: that parts where the embroidery is, is felted of wool carded with glittering fibers, so it shines nicely.

...and felt bags CAN look also elegant not only eco-aunt-like. (Don't throw at me, I heard this from others.)
