Concerning felted accessoires I am a bit torn: They can be very stylish or cute, but then what I see often looks to me more frumpish and kitschy. So, for a long time I hesitated to do some felting myself.
I stopped hesitating and finally gave it a start with a little project – a mini coin purse in grey and pink/purple. My intention was not to create a felted colour shock but to keep the colour reduced to little accents on natural grey sheep wool.
