HALF PRICE CLOSING DOWN SALE. Coin purse made with upcycled / repurposed felted wool salvaged from a shrunk sweater. Grey with blue stripes of wool yarn, sewn by hand in dashed lines across the front of the purse.

The grey wool base is felted wool - a high quality woollen sweater was shrunk by accident by the last owner and donated to charity. The garment was too shrunk and misshapen to wear, but the wool had become beautifully soft and dense felt.

The wool embroidery is deep blue wool yarn which I stitched by hand across the front panel of the purse before assembling it. The stitches create contrast with the texture of the wool base. I stitched a second-hand button to the front for a finishing touch.

Lined inside with a lovely blue and white floral cotton, also salvaged from a damaged garment (a child's blouse) The purse closes securely with a bold red zipper.

Approximate external measurements.
4.5 inches wide (11 cm)
4.25 inches high (10.5 cm)
Just right for credit cards or coins and folded notes.
