We upcycled this adorable wool hippo purse from a vintage pink St. Mary's blanket. The lucky owner of this fun, one-of-a-kind bag can wear it across the body in the messenger style or over the shoulder. It’s a perfect eco-chic purse for traveling, shopping and running errands around town. It also makes a wonderful gift, especially for those who love and appreciate vintage wool, handmade "green" products and anything with hippos!

Atop the soft pink wool, we hand-stitched our self-designed hippo onto the purse with cream embroidery thread. We hand-cut the hippo from a vintage blue wool blanket and created her spout and tail using a bit of jaunty floral vintage fabric. The bag closes at the top with a vintage pink button and heavy leather tie.

This eco-friendly bag measures 9 inches wide by 10.75 inches long. It features a 54-inch heavy rope messenger strap. We lined the purse with a beautiful vintage floral sheet that really compliments the bag’s quirky, one-of-a-kind look.

For extra support, we’ve triple-stitched all strap seams so that you can carry around your items with ease and durability.

So leave the mother-ship bag at home and just carry your one-of-a-kind satellite purse!

Please send us an e-mail or convo if you have any questions! We also take special orders on bags and offer other wool and vintage styles in our Etsy shop.

Thanks … and enjoy your one-of-a-kind hippo purse!
