Felted Bag from Atlantis

A little bag to wear with jeans or the little black dress.
I wanted to loose myself in surface structures and the shades of blue, green and turquoise.

Different self dyed fabrics and yarns and fibres combined with free stitching.

You can go fishing or if you're vegetarian just help yourself at the kelp-buffet.

Can you feel the likable cool, turquoise water surrounding you?
And do you see the sunbeams under the water?
All around fluctuation, light, glimmer and all the same calming silence...

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.)
More about the modern hungarian gipsy style here.
