Quince blossoms, glowing ribbon, and golden trims lend an especially elegant feeling to this knitted, fulled, and embellished bag. The age-old techniques of handpainting, needlefelting, embroidery, and beading combine to stunning effect in a shapely ginger jar “vase” allowing a modern heroine to showcase her ladylike accomplishments in needlework wherever she roams. Though this project combines several techniques, you conclude each one before moving on to the next.
