Faerie Bag

I'm off to Ireland shortly to visit with my family. Whilst I'm there my cousins daughter will be celebrating her 6th birthday. Well you can't go to a party empty handed so I made her a faerie bag. Hopefully I will be able to find a little faerie book to put inside it too before I go.

The bags itself was made from a woolen blanket that I had felted and dyed, and is lined with cotton fabric. The faerie was taken from Jillian Sawyers book 'Faerie Lights'. The bottom of the bag has boxed corners to give it a square shape base.

The tag was made from felt, I made a silver cord to attach it to the bag and added some sparkly buttons, a star and a butterfly to the bottom before attaching it to the bag handle.
