I enjoy making the insides of my bags as beautiful as the outside, and in this one I decided to make a bag with two different takes on a tree theme. This could even be the same tree in two different seasons. I used tapestry wool for the branches and it’s felted together nicely acquiring the bumps and wrinkles that resemble the texture of bark.

I’ve taken an idea here from my paintings (using water soluble wax pastels on special japanese paper). I so love the silhouettes of trees against a winter evening sky and am endlessly fascinated by their different shapes which are revealed when all the leaves have fallen.
