Bag, by Nancy Taylor

Said Nancy: "My bag started off as a scarf that Judy Johnston (one of our members) made for me when she first got into weaving. At that time I was a bit of a novice with our alpaca fibre and this was made from the necks mixed with a bit of silk on one of the colours but it was always a bit coarse. It never sold!! I tried felting it by the washing machine method as I thought it might be too wide, but that did really work either. Sooo... hence the what I called the excuse for a bag. I used the width to turn it into a bag and to try and brighten it up I put the lambs wool blend on the
bottom. It is lined."

You got it right, Nancy! I could not take my eyes off the funky red-and-black bits while Nancy was talking.
