Ring in the New Year with a glammy hand-felted mini purse! This soft palm-sized accessory is truly a bit of affordable luxury. Use it as an elegant evening clutch or a posh coin purse for lipsticks and love notes. Looks great perched on a vanity holding make-up brushes, too!

Body is wet-felted from the finest cinnamon-brown merino wool. It measures 3" in diameter and 3.5" in height and is perfectly round at the bottom — giving it a fresh, contemporary feel. Trimmed with gorgeous cocoa-brown and cinnamon-colored feathers, coordinating porcelain bead charm, and magnetic closure.

This listing is for the lighter (cinnamon brown) purse in the photos (see top-most and third photos for detail). Ships nicely-packaged for easy gift-giving.

How it was made: Body of purse was entirely handmade by way of two felting stages. I first needle-felted several layers of the finest merino wool fiber around a form, then wet-felted the body. Once shaped and dried, I cut the form free and added the clasp, accent beads, and feather trim.
