After working two days on this purse (not yet finished) I noticed the color of the silk faded on the flap but not on the main body of the item itself. Non color fasted silk will bleed during the felting process. Lesson hard learned. Let’s see what happens next. I have extra silk and have laid it on top of the faded section and drowned it in hot water, hoping it will bleed into the felted bag. Look for more pictures!

It all started when I went back to visit western Massachusetts where I grew up. My friend took me to the Paradise Art Festival and I saw the most amazing felting there. I was hooked. I knew I had to learn this amazing art. So here I am, going to workshops, selling products in stores and soon, museums. It is fantastic. View all posts by festivefelting
