Small Alpaca Felt Bucket Bag
I purchased a couple bags of Alpaca fleece from one of the vendors at the Archwood Green Barn. The fleece wasn't good enough to spin they told me but I could felt with it ... so I did. I ended up making this cute little bucket bag with the gray fleece. I felted 5 smooth blue pebbles into the felt by covering them up with a piece of chiffon-type fabric to hold them in place. I made the fleece layers extra thick since the staple of the fleece was so short to make sure no thin spots occurred. I usually carry Mary Poppins style bags, not the little guys like this one but I must say I do like the way it turned out. I have plenty of fleece to make a bigger version of it for myself! If you like to purchase it I suggest you go to my Etsy store or e-mail me with questions.
