Happy Friday! + Amazing Felt Bags


Good Morning all! Before I take a leave from you for the weekend I would like to introduce you to the wonderful work of the felt artist Natalia of MSbluesky from Ukraine. She hand felts bags, coin purses and cases for eyeglasses featuring beautiful designs inspired by nature. The bags are individually designed often in shape of animals or depict scene of a winter night in bright colors. Each bag is a piece of art which is also functional. 

Have a wonderful weekend,
