FO - woodland fairy bag

Another FO! I'm just chugging them out. That's a lie. I did this AGES ago, but like the shibori scarf, it was a present so kept off the blog. My current knitting is actually going quite slowly (frogged a sleeve of forecast, grumble, grumble).

Enough of that, the FO. Ta-da! It's a felted bag, a birthday present for my friend Alexis, who recently emigrated to LA.

I did the knitting, felting and embroidery for the outside. Kirsty (Alexis' cousin, my flatmate) sewed all the inside, making a super-strong lining, strap and zip. Plus she chose a cute button from her grandmother's button box to neaten the front pocket. I used green fuzzi felt with a loose lace design suggested in the second R2 book. Felted it, cut bits out and crocheted hexagons in some pink/sparkly scraps I had around.

Years ago, back when we were slightly punkish, slightly gothish teenagers, I made Alexis a similar bag which we both decided looked like Barbie's puke. I've decided all the green fuzzi felt makes this more like the bodily fluid of a woodland fairy. We left the front bit open as an extra pocket, so she can play with the "boobies" that are made by the embroidery. I have to stop knitting things with breasts.

Yay! I was wondering if it would show up on the blog now. I like the woodland fairy name for it, bodily fluids and all...

I'm about to take the fairy secretions off for their first outing, off to the newly opened LA H&M...
