Well, last night I did get a chance to make use of those needle felted leafy bits, which I used to make myself a little grey felt bag. It was fun to make, and I'm really pleased with how the pattern works against the grey background. I'm less pleased with how the strap has fused with the bag (a bit uneven), but I think a little needle felting and snipping here and there should sort that problem. Other than that, it needs a simple fastening and it's done!
I'd love to hear what you think of it - it's the first bag I've made for a while!
