Felted Bookmark

I need to create handmade item for a swap. The instruction was to use the colors brown, beige and gray color palette, with some sea foam green and pale blue thrown in. Think driftwood and sea glass, bleached seashells and warm sandy beaches....

So, I thought to create a bookmark (the receiver collect them), with some of the color. I used Marino felt, curling wool and yo-yo fabric. And this is the result, what do you think?

It is about 10.5" x 3" (26.7 x 7.6 cm).

I think it's great! Just like the sea! Love the combination of fabric and felted wool.

אורית זה נראה כמו צדפים (נדמה לי שהרכיכה הזו נקראת בלוטי ים)
כאלו שדבוקים לכורכר
מקסים ומעורר השראה!
