Eew, There's a Slug on My Purse!

Not content with just slug pillows, I am making a slug bag. I created a "prefelt" of the slug which I laid on top of the wool roving before felting to secure the image. It is laying on top of the resist pattern and you can see how much it shrunk! I am still going to iron it to smooth it all out (I don't want a lumpy bag!) and then sew in a lining and some chunky round black handles. I might even needle felt some eyes onto the slug too!

The back of the purse.

Here's how the back of it looked before I started felting it.

And here is the fabric I picked out for the lining and the handles. Still a lot more work to be done!
