I will update the pics when I finish the bags. The red bag actually has a lighter shade of wool felted onto the tip of the flap, but the picture doesn't show it.

My first experience wet felting produced these two little spirit / medicine bags. They do not yet have their necklace straps afixed. I tried my hand at spinning, using a drop spindle that I made out of a dowel, two cds, a cup hook, and two rubber washers (instructions here). The yarn is drying and it may be a day or two before I can tell if it is going to work well for the strap on the blue bag. If it works for the blue bag, I'll repeat in red.
