Springtime Seems Around The Corner

I know it's still really chilly but it does feel as though spring is not far away.
 A few daffodils in the shop have been bright and breezy but my favourites are tulips of which will be plentiful very soon.
We have been bag making in between hatting using some lovely boiled wool to create a satchel bag and also some glorious French ticking for a gortex lined bag with a matching zip up bag, which has been a commission for a house guest. Hope she likes it.
I've also discovered a lovely new magazine which is providing lots of inspiration called Rakesprogress I can really recommend it for a good read and wonderful images.I purchased it from next door at Snug Gallery.
It's pancake day today so I wish you happy flipping !

A Felt Beret For A Wedding

This is one of my favourite block shapes which I use to make my more formal berets.
A soft mushroom felt has been simply trimmed with a textured fabric which has a thread of colour running through it.
After blocking the beret two slits were made fairly close together and then I threaded the sewn fabric pieces through the main body of the hat.
Always a little nerve wracking when you cut into something that's already complete!
However well worth it to create this simple elegant look.
It has now been purchased and will be off to a wedding this weekend and then to Ireland later in the month.
