Today I am going to re-share my BlogSwap post that I posted over on Katharinas' Blog in October for those of you who missed out on this tutorial.

So lets' get crafting :) 

I am going to show you how to needle-felt decorations onto a bag.

To make this bag you will need:

A canvas bag
A set of felting needles
Wool to felt with
A felting cushion

1. First copy your image that you are wanting to felt onto the bag. 

2. Insert your felting cushion into the bag (don't forget this step otherwise it will be a very sad crafting day as you will felt your bag together!) 

3. Place some wool over the first area to cover and using the felting needle, continue to go in and out over the wool and the bag creating a texture. 

4. Continue to felt over all the surfaces that you are wanting to “Colour-in” 

5. When you are finished it will look something like this: 

This is what my finished bag looks like. 

Here is the Video version of what I did.

Now it is your turn.

I can't wait to see what you have been up to this week. 
Link up your projects below.
Until next week.

I will be sharing this with all my creative Link Ups.
