This beautiful purse has been created from a camel colored herringbone wool coat.
The large flower embellishment is created in the traditional penny rug style of appliquéd circles using the buttonhole stitch. This folk art dates back to the 1800s when the civil war uniforms were being re used as household implements. The flower's center is a large vintage button.
It is lined with a sturdy cotton fabric in complimentary colors. The wide, comfy strap stays on your shoulder and is long enough to wear across your body.
Old coats sometimes hold treasures in their pockets-the tongue has been nicely weighted with the lucky penny!
Flap: 10"x 11"
