Felted Bag

Here is the outcome of the felting tutorial which I attended during my stay in Nizhniy Novgorod in Russia. 
Though the word "tutorial" sounds very officially. I was felting at the cozy kitchen at home of  a very friendly lady Tatyana Nesterenko, whose felting articles I really admire, and of course I had been waiting and planning my visit to her place far ahead  with intention to learn how to felt bags.
Here is her shop with really remarkable and amazing bags, purses and other cute articles.

It took almost all day to felt this small purse, of course with lunch and tea-coffee brakes. We started around 9 a.m. and finished at 7 p.m. 
Here are the pictures made by Tatyana's husband capturing the process of felting and drawing with wool. It's very interesting activity but also tiring because it requires good amount of strength and stamina to felt the wool.

 Here was the result of our work....the purse all drenched in water. It took two or three days to dry it completely.

So finally here is my finished purse after I was back in India.


  1. Looks like you spent a lovely time back home . The felt purse is simply marvelous and the pansy flower looks so beautiful . Waiting to see more of your creations in felt......

  2. Thank you, Motidana. I'm also waiting when I can try something in felt :P
