Snowy Saturdays are simply the best days for felting in the studio with good company, fresh coffee, and lots of yummy fibers. These layered-felted bangle sets are the result of today's undertaking. I spent quite a bit of time experimenting with how to cinch the bangles together, and decided on using silk "hankies' tied in single knots. The two natural fibers play nicely off one another and the silk, once tied, made the elegant decision to bow itself up like a flower. Thank you, silk :)
