Here is my last Pink Post for Thursday - to remind us all about Breast Cancer Research These are some pink felt flowers made by Lynette of Felt Rush whose felt making workshop I attended yesterday.
I had seen some of Lynette's work displayed in a cafe in town and admired these lovely flowers and wanted to find out how to make them but sadly the Flower making workshop was full so I did a handbag class instead - yes I know I have more than enough handbags already but it was a fun day out and I can now use the techniques I learned to make something else. A tea cosy perhaps?! Or maybe I could just upend my bag as a tea cosy?
Here are some pictures of Lynette's work.

"Bag ladies" you'd love these!
The following ones are of my effort - not yet up to the same standard of course but I was happy with it!
The inside has a pattern felted in too - see?So when you see a lady with a green bag with orange handles in the supermarket it might be me!
A delicious lunch was provided, the other students were friendly and the atmosphere convivial. If anyone lives near enough to get to Yeovil for a workshop I can recommend them - I will want to go again I'm sure.
