St. Patrick's Day Green

Okay, I thought I had finished with this theme of scarves, but with St. Patrick's day right around the corner I had to do just one more in green. This one is wide enough to be a wrap and has lots of tussah silk shot through the white area.

This bag has been sitting on my desk staring at me for ages.It was so plain it was painful! The size and shape were all right, but the design was seriously lacking. Finally I covered the blue felted stripe with a summery cotton batik and added trim around the inside edge and along the handles. I'm not sure if it's finished yet, but it's looking much better.

Here's an inspiration photo and a project in progress photo for comparison. The flower still needs some attention before I wet felt it. This will be a handbag when it's done. The wool underneath the green is a natural buff color which will work its way through. Maybe a bit of dark brown in the background will make the flower pop?

I want to make a white & green ruffled edge scarf before moving on to a new theme. So far these have been popular, especially white, gray & black.
