has dyed his body
Continuing my love affair with all things fiber, I created this little bag to interpret the haiku above. The front is a wet felted composition of unspun wool. The dragonfly's body is a multi-colored ribbon knitted into an i-cord, as is the bag's strap. The wings are made of Angelina and hand-stitched onto the wool. For the back of the bag I used hand-dyed velveteen onto which I machine couched a variety of yarns. My photographer (aka my DH) would comment that my pictures are fuzzy. But in my defense, he's in South America at the moment, and I sure can't make a very sharp image of very fuzzy wool.
