HALF PRICE CLOSING DOWN SALE. This is a recycled wool coin purse with bold stripes of bold, blood red, chunky wool yarn embroidered on a cream coloured wool salvaged from a damaged blanket. Each of these vertical red stitches was made by hand, for a unique pattern and texture.

The purse has a lining of dark burgundy and pink striped cotton rescued from an old shirt.
A reclaimed red button adds a finishing touch. The purse fastens securely with a bright red zipper.

The wool embroidery is on the front side, the back is plain. The wool base is a woven type of material with a fuzzy texture.

I have made three of these purses, all very similar with slight variations in the position of the button. If you buy one of these, you'll get one of the ones pictured - let me know if you have a preference! (the one pictured with my donor card has sold, sorry)

Approximately 5 inches wide by 4 inches high (12.5 cm by 10 cm)
Just the right size for credit cards, folded notes and coins.

These purses are best spot-cleaned with a damp sponge / cloth and tepid water.

As with all my items, the recycled components were washed before use.

If you're not familiar with Etsy, basically this site is a selling platform like another well-known site that begins with E and ends in Y, only without the auction format, and dedicated to handmade goods (made by the seller), vintage items and craft supplies.
