base color of the wool forest (bought in worldofwool)
needle fetling embroidery with a spirit of nature
The idea was to design a forest green bag with elegant Chinese crane pattern. Here the steps if you want to create yours:
1 step choose the shape
3 sketches have been done, though all of sketch have similarity of smooth round edges that create a flow feeling, the 3rd one have been selected due to it ergonomic functions.
2 step create a template
For a convenience I used the same sketch to mark the measurement before creating the template. According to marked measurements on the sketch create real size template.
3 step felt the base
4 step needle felt the pattern
Through my experience to get a neat pattern on a 3D object better not to be lazy and do a real size sketch of this pattern and transfer it to the material (felt base). I use old-fashion method (will explain it my blog soon) to transfer sketch/drawing despite of the softness of material that method work well. After pattern is transferred, there are hours and hours of needle felting.
5 step finishing touches
Sew the inside and assemble magnetic snap.
