Finally Finished Felt Bag

I finally finished my wet felted bag. I did pretty well adding the beads and stitching down the loose silk. I like the bag, the color , the texture, but as far as the closure is concerned I was stumped. I bought the button and the silk cord, but then it went nowhere.

Fortunately my daughter made a visit this weekend. I trust her judgement and her taste, so I asked her for some ideas. She came through as always. Voila, it's done!

This is the back of the bag. "What is it supposed to be?" I was asked. " I don't know, what does it look like to you?" I replied. It's like a crystal ball , you could see anything in there. I love the bag. It was fun to make, but I'm pretty sure this really is a one-of a-kind project for me.
